Publisher Summary
“An absorbing biography of the controversial Confederate general, one of the country’s greatest, and oddest heroes.”—The New York Times

No one thought Thomas Jackson would grow up to be a hero. Certainly not his childhood friends, who laughed at him when he fell into the river on the way to church and then sat through the service in his wet clothes. The cadets at West Point watched him sweat buckets whenever he had to speak in class and doubted if he’d even graduate. But through it all, Jackson’s determination to succeed served him well. He found that war allowed him to be the kind of man he’d always dreamed of being. While other soldiers fell back in terror, Jackson stood “like a stone wall” and went on to be one of the most brilliant and heroic military leaders in America.

A New York Times Outstanding Book of the Year

A biography of the brilliant southern general who gained the nickname Stonewall by his stand at Bull Run during the Civil War.
