"Jackson" should give both Andrew and Stonewall. Ridiculous to not accept a last name.

The question for Stonewall Jackson is asking for the nickname "Stonewall". I modified the question to help the quiz taker avoid the situation you faced. All other answers were already accepting last names. Again, thanks for the feedback.
