Allen Tate Stonewall Jackson: The Good Soldier (Price $11.00 Postpaid)

His courage at 1st Manassas saved the Confederate army and earned him his enduring nickname. In the brilliant Shenandoah Valley campaign his outnumbered men marched with such speed that they were henceforth known as "foot cavalry." At Chancellorsville, Lee used him to execute his most daring tactical maneuver of the war. His untimely death was a loss from which the Army of Northern Virginia never recovered. In this fast-paced biography of one of the South's ablest (and most enigmatic) commanders, Allen Tate portrays the qualities that made "Stonewall" Jackson the warrior whom Lee would mourn as "my right arm." It is a rich and dramatic account that should interest any reader of American biography or the War Between the States. Part of the Southern Classic Series of K.S. Sanders & Company.

James I. Robertson The Stonewall Brigade (Price $11.00 Postpaid)

One of the most famous brigades in American history, and indeed the most renowned in Confederate military history. It was initially called "Virginia's First Brigade" and later "Stonewall's Band," "Jackson's Foot Cavalry" - but most prominently "The Stonewall Brigade." Here for the first time is the full story of the Stonewall Brigade, recounted insofar as possible by the members themselves. No effort has been made to conceal the brigade's shortcomings or to overlook its military sins. A confidence gained on many battlefields as a result of hard-won victories gave the unit a cockiness that, to say the least, sometimes hampered its discipline. It was an exceptional brigade, but by no means a perfect one. Yet its weaknesses, when viewed against its achievements, are so negligible that it does stand out as the model brigade, which Douglas Southall Freeman termed it. 271 pages, Paperback.
