Synopsis: Hardly any biography could contain the robust and romantic Jeb Stuart, but John W. Thomason Jr. goes as far as anyone ever has in pinning down the quality of the Confederate cavalry commander. Virginia-bred, James Ewell Brown Stuart graduated from West Point, where he was called ?Beauty,? and rode with the Mounted Rifles against the Apaches and Comanches on the western frontier. When Virginia seceded from the Union, Jeb Stuart joined the Confederate army. His lightning-like raids became legendary. From Bull Run to Brandy Station he served as Robert E. Lee?s eyes and ears, becoming a major general at the age of twenty-eight. Less than three years later Stuart?s meteoric career ended with his death in a cavalry charge.
About the Author: John W. Thomason Jr., a captain in the U. S. Marine Corps in World War I, interviewed members of the Stuart family for this book, first published in 1930. This Bison Book edition is introduced by Gary W. Gallagher, a professor of history at Pennsylvania State University and the author of Fighting for the Confederacy: Personal Recollections of General Edward Porter Alexander and The First Day at Gettysburg: Essays on Confederate and Union Leadership.
