Location: San Diego County, California
Name given as a compromise of sorts. "Stonewall" is certainly an apt description for this granite wall, whose appearance to some suggests a crown "of stone". However the name was originally derived from the nearby Stonewall Jackson gold mine, named for the Confederacy,s master tactician, General Thomas Jonathan "Stonewall" Jackson (1824-63). Since Civil War rivalries were still strong, the name of the mine was shortened for the sake of industrial efficiency (1870).
Peak name was given later.
Name first appears on USFS Cleveland National Forest map (1926).
Peak was on the original 1946 HPS Peak List.
Weldon Heald climbed this peak in 1940.
