Alison reviewed Stonewall Jackson: Lee's Greatest Lieutenant on
From the back cover:
As a boy in western Virginia, Thomas Jackson was serious, honest, and shy. When he was a teacher at the Virginia Military Institute, his students made fun of his stodgy seriousness. But when the Civil War broke out, Jackson showed his brilliance as a general in battle. His daring, skillful maneuvers became legendary. And so did his firmness. In the midst of battle, General Barnard Bee said with awe, "There is Jackson standing like a stone wall."
Stonewall Jackson is one of 10 books in The History of the Civil War, a series that brings the nation's most tragic and turbulent era to life by following the personal stories of its most prominent participants.
