"Christopher Mackowski and Kristopher White have written an outstanding analysis of Lieutenant General Thomas J. Jackson’s last days on the Chandler plantation at Guiney Station. These two fine historians have put this enduring tale in context with history, romance, legend, and the legacy of the Lost Cause. They have culled through an impressive array of primary and secondary source materials. Their interpretation of Stonewall Jackson’s last days in the America of 1863 is fair-minded, balanced, and revealing. Readers, whether Jackson scholars or those learning about the general for the first time, will find this study both illuminating and entertaining."
