Lee-Jackson Memorial Park is located outside the Village of Fairfield in Historic Rockbridge County, Virginia. In the future we plan to offer members and guests the opportunity to experience walking trails through our historical displays and exhibits, enjoy a relaxing picnic, and other recreational opportunities. This view is from the park looking over I-81 towards Virginia's fabulous Blue Ridge Mountains. The park is not open to the public at this time as we are still in our development phase, but please check our calendar of events for opportunities to visit the park.
Lee-Jackson Memorial Park will be a safe home for monuments and memorials rescued from destruction in America's deteriorating cities, such as the Col. William H. Harman monument shown here which was recently rescued and is awaiting relocation to the park. The park will also be a home for new memorials to replicate those destroyed by cultural vandals.
In Honor of all the Widows and Orphans of Confederate soldiers who gathered pennies and dimes to build memorials to their loved ones, we announced our ambitious plan to build a place to rescue or recreate those monuments and provide a place for all to have a safe and enjoyable learning experience. Lee-Jackson Memorial Park will be a place where we can pick up where they left off and honor our heroes and veteran ancestors, and thus our widowed and orphaned grandparents.
Those of us who are descended from the men who fought and died for the
Southern Cause during the War Between the States have no better
representatives than the Stonewall Brigade of Lexington, Virginia. The
Stonewall Brigade exemplifies the best virtues of the Sons of Confederate
Veterans. And there is no better way for us to honor our Southern ancestors
than by supporting them in creating the Lee-Jackson Memorial Park.
During this very Un-American time of "Cultural Cleansing", "Social Marxism"
and "Political Correctness", our simple honoring of those men who fought
for the South during that terrible crucible is being mocked, derided, and erased by a
knee-jerk political wave. That well funded and orchestrated attack has emanated from
academia, the national media, and from many politicians.
These demagogues seem to totally lack any nuanced understanding of our Nation's often
turbulent history. In response, there have been no stronger or wiser advocates for a
genuine study of our complex past than the Stonewall Brigade.
It is estimated that there are now as many as 80 million Americans who are descended
from those who stood in arms for the Southern Cause during that terrible conflict. Our
ancestors and their descendants have been essential in the forming of our Nation
and in protecting it with their blood in all of our nation's conflicts.
We who are descended from those who fought for the South should be extremely proud
of our Heritage. There is no better way to respect that Heritage and those ancestors
than by supporting the Lee Jackson Memorial Park by any and all means.
