The Stonewall Jackson School


Author(s):
Abstract:
The Stonewall Jackson School was an institution for developing juvenile offenders and underprivileged boys. Instead of jail time, boys could go to the Stonewall Jackson School, near Concord, where they could be trained in various trades during their rehabilitation. Academics and recreation were also part of the program to mentor troubled boys and prepare them for responsible citizenship. The article discusses skepticism in popular opinion concerning this progressive concept and supporters who offered land and money.
