Thomas Akers
Spring Rain
Main Street in Lexington, Virginia looking south. The church to the left is where Thomas (Stonewall) Jackson served as deacon; it is walking distance from both the only home he ever owned and Lexington's cemetery where he now rests. When McCrum's drugstore still occupied the shops to the right Phil "Dixie" Nunn who was born a slave, was a fixture on the brick sidewalk and sold postcards to bus passengers stopping in to eat.Tom Wolfe walked here too, when attending Washington & Lee and a young George Patton at VMI; Lee, Marshall, the great and the great yet to be, private villians and the ordinary on a sidewalk wet with seasons of indifferent rain.
