Overview

To commemorate the 150th Anniversary of the end of the Civil War, Diversion Books is publishing seminal works of the era: stories told by the men and women who led, who fought, and who lived in an America that had come apart at the seams.

Thomas Jonathan Jackson earned his famous moniker during the Battle of Manassas, when an entire brigade was commanded to rally behind Jackson, whose own company was fighting like a stone wall. One of the finest generals of the Confederacy, Stonewall Jackson played a vital role in the Civil War, and an even more important role in the mythology of the South. This biography of Jackson, written by renowned military historian G.F.R. Henderson, strives to capture not only the man, but the legend that surrounds him to this day.

The most definitive biography of General Thomas Jonathan "Stonewall" Jackson to be written. Gives wonderful insight into the complete life of the General, not just the military side. The reader will gain a greater understanding of the reasons the southern states succeeded from the union and it was not slavery. Excellent details into the various battles that the General was in from the Mexican War and the Civil War. Wonderful description of his time at VMI as an instructor and how he studied Napoleon's tactics there. He was a compassionate man who was a very devout Christian, did not like to march or go into battle on Sundays. He was as devoted to his men as they were to him! An excellent and must read book for anyone interested in the American Civil War. I could not put the book down until I finished it. An absolutely must read book.

A nicely written book. Most interesting account. Kinda wish the south would have won...States rights should be the rule...that way if one didn't like the rules, for instance in Illinois, New York, Jersey, Conn. California, etc...one could relocate to a more favorable environment, e.g. TX, MT, ID, AK etc...

This book although about Stonewall Jackson, is also a most accurate account of the War between the States. Written prior to the revisionist history of today, when the facts were still fresh on the minds of those who were there.
