Sintesi dell'editore

Deemed "irreplaceable" by Robert E. Lee, Stonewall Jackson assumed his nickname during the Battle of Bull Run in the Civil War. It is said that the Army of Northern Virginia never fully recovered from the loss of Jackson's leadership when he was accidentally shot by one of his own men and died in 1863.

Davis highlights Stonewall Jackson as a general who emphasized the importance of reliable information and early preparedness, who so believed in information that he had a personal mapmaker with him at all times, and he details Jackson's many lessons in strategy and leadership.

understanding the Generals of the Civil war

after lessoning to the books on how the war was fought my interest changed to wanting to understand the Generals, Lee, Grant, Jackson, Sherman, Johnson and Sharidon. How these men moved up and became the reasons why and how we fought this war. It was the Generals that made a battle be won or lost in the ability to stay or run.
