- Notable burials
The Oak Grove Cemetery, formerly known as the Stonewall Jackson Memorial Cemetery and the Presbyterian Cemetery, is located on South Main Street in downtown Lexington, Virginia, less than a mile from the campus of the Virginia Military Institute. The cemetery was named after Stonewall Jackson, who was buried here in 1863. Also buried here are 144 Confederate veterans, two Governors of Virginia, and Margaret Junkin Preston, the "Poet Laureate of the Confederacy".
The cemetery was first known as the Presbyterian Cemetery. After the Lexington Presbyterian Church conveyed the cemetery to the city in 1949, the cemetery was renamed later that year for the Confederate general Stonewall Jackson, who was interred there after his death on May 10, 1863. The Lexington City Council unanimously voted to rename the cemetery in 2020 following the George Floyd protests, and the renaming was unanimously approved on September 3.
The plot of Jackson and his family received a sculpture of Jackson in 1895, created by sculptor Edward V. Valentine. The plot includes graves of: 1. Thomas Jonathan "Stonewall" Jackson: VMI instructor, Confederate Army lieutenant general, commander of Second Corps, Army of Northe
