Stonewall Jackson Statue - Clarksburg

Here goes - I'm trying to use my web host (1and1) to host my photos. Let's see if it works.

Stonewall Jackson Statue on the courthouse square in Clarksburg, at the corner of Main St and 3rd. When I was in Middle School and High School, I would sit on the wall in front of this statue waiting for my bus home. SJ was born across the street where a couple of dime stores stood in the 60s and 70s, before the mall closed everything down.

The Historic Marker Sign.





Here's the statue. They cleaned and polished it up in the 70s, and for awhile it was bright copper or brass (I forget). Now it has returned to it's dull patina.




Here's a view of the area (standing in the middle of Main St during rush hour!
