1. Laura Jackson Arnold Marker
Inscription.  Arnold, sister of Confederate Gen. Stonewall Jackson, was a strong Unionist during the Civil War. She opened her home to Union soldiers and nursed those who were sick. In 1897, Arnold was made an honorary member of the Society of the Army of WV. Due to her care for them while they were at Beverly in 1861, 5th WV Cavalry veterans called her "Mother of the Regiment."
