Jackson, Thomas Jonathan

In Baltimore, we find a statue of Lee with his favourite general, Jackson. A detail worth mentioning is the fact that the sculptor ‘expresses her appreciation to the Gorham factory which abided by its pre-war agreement in casting the statue to its own intrinsic loss’. A memorial ceremony is held annually, with music, a march, a pledge of allegiance to the US flag, a salute to the Confederate flag, a benediction by a chaplain and so on. ‘The Sons of the Confederate veterans and the United Daughters of the Confederacy’ organize this ceremony.

The statue was removed in 2017
