Mary Anna Morrison Jackson (July 21, 1831 - March 24, 1915) was the second wife (and ultimately the widow of) of General Thomas "Stonewall" Jackson. They married in 1857. They had two children. Their first, a daughter, died less than a month after she was born. Their second daughter, Julia, was born in 1862. After Jackson's death, Mary never remarried, and always wore mourning clothes. After Julia died in 1889, Mary raised her daughter's children. She was active in organizing reunions and remembrances of Confederate veterans until her own death in 1915.

Mary Anna Morrison Jackson in Southern Victory[]

While Mary Anna Morrison Jackson was quite proud of her husband's accomplishments during the War of Secession and the Second Mexican War, she knew that military combat was her main rival for Jackson's affections. She tolerated this infidelity on a limited basis. Even late night visitors to their home could cause her a measure of alarm, as Senator Wade Hampton III's visit did in 1882.[1]

The two had a daughter named Julia and a son named Jonathan.[2]
