Why May 10th? PDF Print E-mail

Why is May 10th Confederate Memorial Day? Deeply loved and respected by his troops and all Southerners, Gen. Thomas J. “Stonewall” Jackson died on May 10, 1863, near Fredericksburg, Va., from pneumonia contracted while recovering from battlefield wounds. Because Gen. Jackson was so universally respected and his death had a profound impact on the state, the North Carolina legislature chose the day of his death as Confederate Memorial Day in the Old North State. South Carolina also celebrates Confederate Memorial Day on May 10, though each state chose its own date to remember those who served their state and nation.
