Blood Image: Turner Ashby in the Civil War and the Southern Mind

Overview

"With Blood Image, his original biography of Confederate cavalry leader Turner Ashby, Paul Anderson demonstrates that the symbol of a man can be just as important as the man himself. Renowned as a born leader, graceful horseman, and violent partisan warrior, Turner Ashby was one of the most famous fighting men of the Civil War. Rising to colonel of the 7th Virginia Cavalry, Ashby fought brilliantly under Thomas J. "Stonewall" Jackson during the 1862 Shenandoah Valley campaign until he died in battle near Harrisonburg, Virginia." These bare facts

Overview

"With Blood Image, his original biography of Confederate cavalry leader Turner Ashby, Paul Anderson demonstrates that the symbol of a man can be just as important as the man himself. Renowned as a born leader, graceful horseman, and violent partisan warrior, Turner Ashby was one of the most famous fighting men of the Civil War. Rising to colonel of the 7th Virginia Cavalry, Ashby fought brilliantly under Thomas J. "Stonewall" Jackson during the 1862 Shenandoah Valley campaign until he died in battle near Harrisonburg, Virginia." These bare facts of Ashby's wartime exploits scarcely convey the majesty and shaping force of the legend that grew around him while he lived and fought. Anderson explores how and why Ashby's admirers in the Shenandoah Valley made him into their essential icon of "home." Anderson also demonstrates that Ashby's image - a catalytic, mesmerizing, and often contradictory combination of southern antebellum cultural ideals and wartime hopes and fears - emerged during his own lifetime and was not a later creation of the Lost Cause.

    Stained Image: Turner Ashby in the Civil War and the Northern Mind

    Well footnoted, but author's opinionated view of Southern culture makes it a difficult read at some points. Facts are well presented and documented. Text comes across as a non-Southerner trying to define life in the South through their interpretation, sometimes abrasively politically correct. I would not rate as the definitive book on Turner Ashby. It could have been.
