Stonewall Jackson’s Black Sunday School (hardback)
In 1855 slaves and free black men, women, and children first made their way to the Lexington Presbyterian Church to attend Sunday school. Thomas J. Jackson, a professor at VMI, was leader of the Sunday school. Although illegal under Virginia law to teach blacks to read and write, Jackson believed all, regardless of race, should have the opportunity to receive an education and hear the Word of God.
