Overview

Commanded by Thomas J. Jackson and made up of the 2nd, 4th, 5th, 27th and 33rd Virginia Infantry Regiments, plus the Rockbridge Artillery Battery, the unit was officially Virginia's First Brigade. This changed forever at the Battle of First Manassas when in the face of a seemingly overwhelming Federal attack, General Bee, an adjacent Confederate brigade commander, reportedly said, "Yonder stands Jackson like a stone wall; let's go to his assistance. Rally behind the Virginians!"

This book describes the Stonewall Brigade in combat from first mustering to bitter end, when only 210 ragged and footsore soldiers remained of the 6,000 who'd served through the war. The Stonewall Brigade contains detailed order of battle charts, tables of organization and equipment, and technical specifications of the brigade's weapons. It also features special sidebars on the unit's commanders. Color maps illustrate the brigade's major battles; and a combination of vintage photographs, new images of contemporary reenactors, and Civil War-era paintings and drawings helps to bring the Stonewall Brigade to life.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Civil War Times
“In The Stonewall Brigade, authors Hook and Smith sort out the evolution of the companies that formed the 2nd, 4th, 5th, 27th, and 33rd Virginia Infantry regiments and their supporting artillery units, and diligently explore the details of the brigade’s lofty record. A wealth of illustrations as well as vivid descriptions of the soldier’s training and living conditions are included, along with tales of notable members who contributed to the brigade’s unique character. This is a concise guide to one of the war’s most storied fighting units.”
