Apples Shipping Crate

Description (Brief)
This shipping crate side contained Stonewall brand apples that were packed by Stonewall Orchards, Inc. of Winchester, Virginia during the early 20th century. The crate side has a portrait of a man framed by a shield on the upper right, and a red apple painted in the center. The brand and orchard were likely references to Confederate Lieutenant General Stonewall Jackson.
