Of all the images associated with the Civil War era, there is none more captivating than that of the swashbuckling Confederate cavalry officer. Daring, fearless, and often reckless to a fault, cavalry commanders were icons in the South both during the conflict and afterwards. A master horse soldier, Mosby was the scourge of Union forces in Northern Virginia or, as the region came to be know, "Mosby's Confederacy."

Mosby provides an extraordinary record of the war in Virginia as well as the studied, first-hand insights of one of the Confederacy's most formidable soldiers.
