Little Sorrell: The bones of Little Sorrell (Stonewall's horse) were buried recently on VMI's parade ground. Little Sorrell's cremated remains were placed in a handmade walnut casket about the size of a filing cabinet and buried and marked with a stone monument at the base of Stonewall's statue. Nearly 400 people turned out for the ceremony.
James Robertson, a Virginia Tech history professor and Jackson biographer, said that this is one of the most famous horses in American history.
Other Matters:....by the way, Myrtle Beach was great!!!!
Yours in the Spirit,
