This room was named to honor Stonewall Jackson. During the Civil war, soldiers camped by the South River and as a form of recreation; they would often take tours through the caverns. When they came to this particular chamber, they thought the double shield you see looked like Stonewall’s horse, Little Sorrel, hence the name, Jackson’s Horse.
