For generations of Americans, “Stonewall” Jacksons Irish ancestry has remained an intriguing mystery, and, for American Jackson family historians, his Irish great-grandfather, John Jackson, has represented both the beginning and the end of research into their Jackson lineage. Over the years, various erroneous theories have been expounded, ranging from the suggestion that “Stonewall” Jacksons family is connected in some way with that of former American President Andrew Jackson to the idea that John Jackson was born in Coleraine, County Londonderry, and was transported from London to America as a convict. This book is the authentic and definitive history of the Irish ancestry of “Stonewall” Jackson, setting the record straight as it follows the exciting, parallel achievements of two distinguished lines of the same family on both sides of the Atlantic.
