From the Publisher
“Entertaining and exhaustively researched, this is the first book on John S. Mosby’s second-in-command William Chapman. Gordon B. Bonan provides new details and new insights into Mosby’s against-the-odds victory at Miskel’s farm and other cavalry skirmishes. . . . Chapman comes alive and speaks for himself through the Civil War and afterward.”—James A. Ramage, author of Gray Ghost: The Life of Col. John Singleton Mosby
"Few Confederates were willing to pursue the tactics of guerrilla warfare that William Chapman and his comrades in Mosby’s Rangers perfected against Federal armies in Virginia. Gordon Bonan has done a masterful job of chronicling Chapman’s exploits as a Confederate partisan without sacrificing the deeper political and social meaning of a military career that was filled with high drama and daring exploits."
-Peter S. Carmichael, Eberly Professor of History, West Virginia University and the author of The Last Generation: Young Virginian in Peace, War, and Reunion
