Regarding Thomas J. Jackson. The statue was commissioned and erected by the Charleston Chapter No. 151, United Daughters of the
Confederacy. The marble for the base was quarried at Genoa; the bronze statue cast in Italy. A replacement stone was later added to the statue in memory of Brigadier General Samuel Green, who was a West Virginian fighting for the Confederacy during the Civil War. This monument was first placed on the lawn of the Old Capitol Building. The Old Capitol Building burned in Jan. 1921 and the monument was relocated on July 25, 1926 to the grounds of the new Capitol, then under construction.
