LEXINGTON, Va. (AP) — Registration is open for the biennial Stonewall Jackson symposium in VMI in Lexington, the final resting place for the legendary Confederate military leader.

The symposium is scheduled for May 23-24. Sponsored by the Stonewall Jackson House, it will examine the life and career of the Civil War general. Six authorities on the Civil War and Jackson are scheduled to explore Jackson's career as a teacher and leader of men.

Jackson taught at Virginia Military Institute and he is buried there. The Stonewall Jackson House is the only house he ever owned. It is one of three museums operate by VMI.
