A Plaque at Jackson's Mill

This monument does not identify who erected it or when. I notice that it's similar to some erected by the Daughters of the Confederacy throughout the south and in the border states.
This tablet marks the site of the boyhood home of General T. J. (Stonewall) Jackson.
A soldier of great military genius and renown
A man of resolute, pure and Christian character
Died May 10, 1863
Of wounds received at
The Battle of Chancellorsville, Virginia.
Jackson's Mill, West Virginia
