My tribute to Stonerwall Jackson.

Cotton Fields Of Courage

From cotton fields of courage,
Rose this man of lion heart
To ford this land of battle
That seething sea to part.

As knight in shining armour
Cross jewelled Southern sky
He came from out of nowhere,
With fire encrusted eye.

Through mighty Shenandoah
His sparkling blade did scythe.
Along majestic valley
The gray wave he did drive.

Immortalised forever
On horse he sits so tall.
The pride of all Virginia,
The man who gave his all
