Thomas Jonathan "Stonewall" Jackson (January 21, 1824 – May 10, 1863) was the best-known Confederate commander after General Robert E. Lee. Jackson played a prominent role in nearly all military engagements in the Eastern Theater of the war until his death, and played an important part in winning many significant battles. Jackson was born in what was then part of Virginia. He received an appointment to the United States Military Academy at West Point. He served in the U.S. Army during the Mexican–American War and distinguished himself at Chapultepec. From 1851 to 1863, he taught at the Virginia Military Institute, where he was unpopular with his students. When Virginia seceded from the Union in 1861 after Lincoln called for 75,000 troops to invade the South, Jackson followed it and joined the Confederate Army. He distinguished himself commanding a brigade at the First Battle of Bull Run the following month, providing crucial reinforcements and beating back a fierce Union assault. It was there that Barnard Elliott Bee Jr., allegedly for Jackson's courage and tenacity, compared him to a "stone wall," which became his enduring nickname. Military historians consider Jackson to be one of the most gifted tactical commanders in U.S. history. His tactics are studied even today.

Terry Jones has been a professional sculptor since 1968. He studied at the Hussian School of Art in Philadelphia and the Ecole des Beaux Arts in Paris, France. The first 16 years of his professional career were spent sculpting over 600 bas-relief coins and medals for various private mints. In 1980 he was one of a very few American artists to be invited to show at the International Exhibit of Medallic Art in Florence, Italy. In 1984 the American Numismatic Association named him Medallic Sculptor of the year. Among so many other coins and medals, he sculpted the Vince Lombardi Super Bowl coin-toss commemorative and portraits of Gov. Tom Ridge and Lt. Gov. Mark Schweiker for the 1999 PA Inaugural Medal. He also created “coin of the realm” for foreign countries: British Virgin Islands, Bahamas, Jamaica, Panama, etc.   [sm]
