[243] Winchester set forth in their carriages, their wagons and even in ox carts and picked up the wounded and the dead. That is the reason why Stonewall Jackson Cemetery, the sacred spot placed right next to the heart of the city, contains to-day such a large number of marked graves.

In the hurried days of battle the women could only mark the resting place of each hero with a plain, wooden slab, bearing the name and command of the soldier. Unsatisfied with their grand work in war time, the women of Winchester have been unceasing in these times of peace in their efforts to have these graves properly marked. The Southern States were appealed to, and most of them, Louisiana among the number, nobly responded, and have marked each grave with a lasting marble headstone, bearing inscriptions telling as fully as is known the story of the dead who lie on the rolling hills of Winchester cemetery, overlooking the battlefields where they fell.
