    One of my computer screens at work gives a history tidbit in the afternoons. I thought this was a cute way of talking about the Second Battle of Bull Run and Stonewall Jackson -

    August 30,1862, Manassas,Virginia -

    At the second Battle of Bull Run, the Union Army was once again trounced by the Confederates. Thomas "Stonewall" Jackson, who acquired his nickname at last year's clash, was a major player and was voted MVP.

    Jackson holding the enemy's attention was certainly important, but the knockout blow was struck by Longstreet this time!
