The house in the picture above is on the campus of Washington and Lee University and has a fascinating history. The north wing of the house was first occupied in 1853 by Professor Thomas J. ('Stonewall') Jackson, who had married the daughter of the president of the College. In 1865 this house was the home of Robert E. Lee and his family while the current President's house was being constructed next door.
