Frank E. Vandiver's detailed research and zestful writing style provide a vivid description of Stonewall's boyhood, West Point training, early career, years of teaching at the Virginia Military Institute, and Civil War campaigns. Here, too, are insights into Jackson's personal life and his deep religious feelings, which were so influential on his military thought and actions.
"I strongly recommend Thompson's highly readable biography. It furnishes valuable views on New Mexico in the middle 19th century."--Marc Simmons
