Stonewall Jackson Quotes


Sacrifice your life rather than your word.


Never take counsel of your fears.

I know that I shall have the application necessary to succeed. I hope that I have the capacity. At least I am determined to try, and I wish you to help me to do this.

You may be whatever you resolve to be.

I see from the number of physicians that you think my condition dangerous, but I thank God, if it is His will, that I am ready to go. … It is the Lord’s Day; my wish is fulfilled. … I have always desired to die on Sunday.

Through life let your personal object be the discharge of duty

Our movement was a great success; I think the most successful military movement of my life. But I expect to receive more credit for it than I deserve. Most men will think I planned it all from the first, but it was not so. I simply took advantage of circumstances as they were presented to me in the providence of God. I feel that His handled me – let us give Him the glory.

Let your conduct toward men have some uniformity.

That fellow looks as if he has come to stay.

“Then, Sir, we will give them the bayonet!” – Stonewall Jackson’s reply to Colonel B.E Bee when he reported that the enemies were beating them back at the first battle of Bull Run, July 1861.

Madam, if your son were to come home and try to shirk duty, you ought to shut your door in his face and treat him as a renegade unworthy of your name or regard.

A meritorious young man… quite a smart youth in every respect for his age and opportunity… a youth… with many noble faculties of soul and great moral worth… a fit and proper person… a young man of industry and perseverance.

My religious belief teaches me to feel as safe in battle as in a bed. God has fixed the time for my death. I do not concern myself about that, but to always be ready, no matter when it may overtake me.

Who could not conquer with such troops as these?

The patriot volunteer, fighting for country and his rights, makes the most reliable soldier on earth.

This army stays here until the last wounded man is removed. Before I leave them to the enemy, I will lose many more men.

People who are anxious to bring on war don’t know what they are bargaining for; they don’t see all the horrors that must accompany such an event.

I have so fixed the habit in my own mind that I never raise a glass of water to my lips without a moment’s asking of God’s blessing. I never seal a letter without putting a word of prayer under the seal. I never take a letter from the post without a brief sending of my thoughts heavenward. I never change classes in the section room without a minute’s petition on the cadets who go out and those who come in.

Press on, press on, men.

I was afraid the fire would not be hot enough for me to distinguish myself.

Under divine blessing, we must rely on the bayonet when firearms cannot be furnished

Stonewall Jackson Quotes on Army

War means fighting. The business of the soldier is to fight. Armies are not called out to dig trenches, to throw up breastworks, to live in camps, but to find the enemy and strike him; to invade his country, and do him all possible damage in the shortest possible time. This will involve great destruction of life and property while it lasts, but such a war will of necessity be of brief continuance, and so would be an economy of life and property in the end.

Always mystify, mislead, and surprise the enemy, if possible; and when you strike and overcome him, never let up in the pursuit so long as your men have the strength to follow; for an army routed, if hotly pursued, becomes panic-stricken, and can then be destroyed by half their number. The other rule is, never fight against heavy odds, if by any possible maneuvering you can hurl your own force on only a part, and that the weakest part, of your enemy and crush it. Such tactics will win every time, and a small army may thus destroy a large one in detail, and repeated victory will make it invincible.

This army stays here until the last wounded man is removed. Before I leave them to the enemy, I will lose many more men.

In the Army of the Shenandoah, you were the First Brigade! In the Army of the Potomac, you were the First Brigade! In the Second Corps of this Army, you are the First Brigade! You are the First Brigade in the affections of your general, and I hope by your future deeds and bearing you will be handed down the posterity as the First Brigade in this our Second War of Independence. Farewell!

Stonewall Jackson Quotes on God & Death
My religious belief teaches me to feel as safe in battle as in bed. God has fixed the time for my death. I do not concern myself about that, but to always be ready, no matter when it may overtake me.

We are all but instruments of God.

“You were the First Brigade in the Army of the Shenandoah, the First Brigade in the Army of the Potomac, the First Brigade in the Second Corps, and are the First Brigade in the hearts of your generals. I hope that you will be the First Brigade in this, our second struggle for independence, and in the future, on the fields on which the Stonewall Brigade are engaged, I expect to hear of crowning deeds of valor and of victories gloriously achieved! May God bless you all! Farewell!”

Duty is ours; consequences are God’s.

Stonewall Jackson Quotes about Civil War
Died of wounds inflicted in error by his own troops at the battle of Chancellorsville during the US Civil War. Let us cross over the river and sit in the shade of the trees.

I find I like it too much.

In the Army of the Shenandoah, you were the First Brigade! In the Army of the Potomac you were the First Brigade! In the Second Corps of this Army, you are the First Brigade! You are the First Brigade in the affections of your general, and I hope by your future deeds and bearing you will be handed down the posterity as the First Brigade in this our Second War of Independence. Farewell!

It is painful enough to discover with what unconcern they speak of war and threaten it. I have seen enough of it to make me look upon it as the sum of all evils.

Stonewall Jackson Quotes on Country
I am more anxious than I can express that my men should be not only good soldiers of their country, but also good soldiers of the cross.

War means fighting. The business of the soldier is to fight. Armies are not called out to dig trenches, to throw up breastworks, to live in camps, but to find the enemy and strike him; to invade his country, and do him all possible damage in the shortest possible time. This will involve great destruction of life and property while it lasts; but such a war will of necessity be of brief continuance, and so would be an economy of life and property in the end.

The patriot volunteer, fighting for country and his rights, makes the most reliable soldier on earth.

Once you get them running, you stay right on top of them, and that way a small force can defeat a large one every time… Only thus can a weaker country cope with a stronger; it must make up in activity what it lacks in strength.

Stonewall Jackson Quotes on Military
Don’t say it’s impossible! Turn your command over to the next officer. If he can’t do it, I’ll find someone who can, even if I have to take him from the ranks!

The patriot volunteer, fighting for country and his rights, makes the most reliable soldier on earth.

I yield to no man in sympathy for the gallant men under my command; but I am obliged to sweat them tonight, so that I may save their blood tomorrow.

Once you get them running, you stay right on top of them, and that way a small force can defeat a large one every time… Only thus can a weaker country cope with a stronger; it must make up in activity what it lacks in strength.

Stonewall Jackson Quotes on Duty
Through life let your principal object be the discharge of duty.

Do your duty and leave the rest to Providence.

My duty is to obey orders.

Short Stonewall Jackson Quotes
Never Try to appear wiser and learned than the rest of the company.

Never weary your company by talking too long or too frequently.

It is not desirable to have a large number of intimate friends.

Silence: Speak but what may benefit others or yourself; avoid trifling conversation.

Stonewall Jackson Quotes on Enemies
I am more afraid of alcohol than of all the bullets of the enemy.


Always mystify, mislead and surprise the enemy if possible.
