This biography of the Civil War general "opens with Jackson presiding over the execution of John Brown after Harper's Ferry. It skips ahead to the Valley campaign where Jackson first showed his abilities, then retreats to his early life--and finally transcribes the events between his transfer to Richmond until his death at Chancellorville." -Kirkus
I don't usually read biographies or anything Non-fiction, but this was more like an action novel than an actual biography. All of the quirks of General Jackson makes you want to laugh at him but then you realize that if the Confederates would of listened to him we would probably still have slaves. The only thing I didn't like about this is that it skips around a lot and sometimes you can't keep up.
I came upon this book when I told my World History teacher that I liked Stonewall Jackson. He brought it in from his house for me.
I would recommend this book to any history buffs and historical fiction lovers.
