Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
". . . deserved to see the light long ago."--The Nation

"A fortunate addition to the works on the Confederacy's loved general, and a particularly readable and invigorating picture of the times . . . a colorful account, full of the youngness, the rawness, and the bravery of the Southern army. . . . He has written as he lived and fought, earnestly, actively; and with an honest brand of romanticism."--Malcolm Bell, Jr., in The Savannah News

"A thrilling story of the War of the Sixties."--Carroll Dulaney in The Baltimore News Post

". . . more interested in the human side of the war than the technical or military. . . . Indeed, Colonel Douglas strikes a modern note in his handling of his story. He focuses on the humor and pathos with a telling that would equal the camp fire candor of army life today. From John Brown's raid to the trial of Mary E. Surratt, it is a story of tender emotions, gallant riders, dashing young officers and their loyal soldiers."--Thomas Ripley in The Atlanta Journal

"A new mine of information about the immortal Stonewall. . . . The most interesting memoir of the Confederacy that has come out in a long time."--H. J. Eckenrode in The Richmond Times-Dispatch

"There are no heroics and unreconstructed-rebel sighs in the book; it is a simple and vivid record of day-by-day events. . . . For those who like to read about the war as it was instead of as it might have been, Douglas, born a hundred years ago this year, is this year's man."--Ralph Thompson in The New York Times

"I have read many novels about the war between the states, and some histories; never that I can recall, have I read any narrative that gave me a keener sense of what it was like, day by day, in the army than does Henry Kyd Douglas's I Rode with Stonewall."--Lewis Gannett, New York Herald Tribune

    I Also Recommend:

    The title says it all.

    This is the first-hand account of Henry Kyd Douglas who was on the staff of Stonewall Jackon until Stonewall was killed. He then served on several other general's staffs. A Marylander, he had Southern sympathies, and he watched his family's barn burn in the aftermath of the battles and skirmishes in the Antietam/Sharpsburg area.
    The book he wrote is based on the journals he kept while in the service; thus the first-hand account of his adventures in the Civil War. The book does not deal so much with the battles per se, but rather with the events surrounding them.
    It is an excellent companion volune to the lives of Stonewall Jackson and Robert E. Lee written by John Esten Cooke. Everyone interested in the American Civil War should have these three books in his collection.
