From Bull Run (Manassas), where Thomas Jackson earned his famous nickname, to tragedy at Chancellorsville, The Life of Stonewall Jackson is the story of how the unassuming Virginian became General Robert E. Lee’s right arm and most trusted Confederate commander.
The Life of Stonewall Jackson relates key events in the life of the Civil-War hero from his impoverished childhood, to his education at West Point, auspicious debut in the Mexican-American war, and later professorship at the Virginia Military Institute. The biography also provides a detailed look at the events and battles that allowed the “great faculties of his soul” to bloom before his tragic death on the field of battle in 1863.
