"Packed with Confederate wounded"The Taylor Hotel was a major stopping point for travelers because of its location on the Valley Turnpike and also was the center of town life. During the war, it was the headquarters for several commanders, including Confederate Gen. Thomas J. "Stonewall" Jackson, who came here in November 1861. His stay was short-lived, however. Disturbed by throngs eager to meet the celebrated "Stonewall," he moved days later to the privacy of the Lewis T. Moore house (now the Stonewall Jackson's Headquarters Museum).
