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.

At the age of eighteen I was a member of the Junior Class at Washington
College at Lexington, Virginia, during the session of 1860-61, and with the
rest of the students was more interested in the foreshadowings of that
ominous period than in the teachings of the professors. Among our
number there were a few from the States farther south who seemed to have
been born secessionists, while a large majority of the students were

decidedly in favor of the Union.
Our president, the Rev. Dr. George Junkin, who hailed from the North, was
heart and soul a Union man, notwithstanding the fact that one of his
daughters was the first wife of Major Thomas J. Jackson, who developed
into the world-renowned 'Stonewall' Jackson. Another daughter was the
great Southern poetess, Mrs. Margaret J. Preston, and Dr. Junkin's son, Rev.
W. F. Junkin, a most lovable man, became an ardent Southern soldier and a
chaplain in the Confederate Army throughout the war.
At the anniversary of the Washington Literary Society, on February 22,
1861, the right of secession was attacked and defended by the participants
in the discussion, with no less zeal than they afterward displayed on many
bloody battlefields.
We had as a near neighbor the Virginia Military Institute, 'The West Point
of the South,' where scores of her young chivalry were assembled, who
were eager to put into practice the subjects taught in their school. Previous
to these exciting times not the most kindly feelings, and but little
intercourse had existed between the two bodies of young men. The
secession element in the College, however, finding more congenial
company among the cadets, opened up the way for quite intimate and
friendly relations between the two institutions. In January, 1861, the corps
of cadets had been ordered by Governor Wise to be present, as a military
