Editorial Reviews

Internet Book Watch
No front line general of the Confedracy was so dashing in conduct or so well thought of by his troops as the calvary commander Jeb Stuart. In Jeb Stuart: The Last Cavalier, biographer and historian Burke Davis provides a comprehensive, definitive, dramatic biography of this enigmatic and superbly competent Civil War "Hero of the Confederacy". We are taken from his childhood to his training at West Point, from his service on the Western frontier to his decision to stand with Virginia with the outbreak of hostilities between the Union and the Confederacy, through his many daring raids and battles to his final, fatal clash at Yellow Tavern. Jeb Stuart: The Last Cavalier is a superbly written and much appreciated contribution to the growing library of Civil War studies and biographies.
