More About Rebel Yell by S. C. Gwynne
 
 
 
Overview
Finalist for the National Book Critics Circle Award, the epic "New York Times" bestselling account of how Civil War general Thomas Stonewall Jackson became a great and tragic national hero.
Stonewall Jackson has long been a figure of legend and romance. As much as any person in the Confederate pantheon even Robert E. Lee he embodies the romantic Southern notion of the virtuous lost cause. Jackson is also considered, without argument, one of our country s greatest military figures. In April 1862, however, he was merely another Confederate general in an army fighting what seemed to be a losing cause. But by June he had engineered perhaps the greatest military campaign in American history and was one of the most famous men in the Western world. Jackson s strategic innovations shattered the conventional wisdom of how war was waged; he was so far ahead of his time that his techniques would be studied generations into the future.
In his magnificent "Rebel Yell" S.C. Gwynne brings Jackson ferociously to life (New York "Newsday") in a swiftly vivid narrative that is rich with battle lore, biographical detail, and intense conflict among historical figures. Gwynne delves deep into Jackson s private life and traces Jackson s brilliant twenty-four-month career in the Civil War, the period that encompasses his rise from obscurity to fame and legend; his stunning effect on the course of the war itself; and his tragic death, which caused both North and South to grieve the loss of a remarkable American hero."
