Stonewall Jackson was just a wee bit eccentric. He was said to be as calm as a cucumber in battle and was often seen with his left arm raised - something to do with blood circulation as bullets flew around him. He loved sucking on the odd lemon and avoided pepper like the plague because it made his left leg ache. Dressed in tattered old uniforms. His horse was too small for him and he disliked battle on Sundays. In all this he was a devout Christian and prayed fervently even before battles.

Remains: A dying Siberian maiden who lived 2,500 years ago may have self-medicated with marijuana. Russian scientists using MRI scans determined that the #mummified and tattooed body of the "Ice Princess" showed breast cancer. In addition, scans found evidence of injuries consistent with a fall ---perhaps from a horse. To cope with the pain she must have been experiencing, the princess could have resorted to cannibis---which was found alongside the #mummy in her burial chamber.
