Overview

No name in the annals of the Civil War conjures a more romantic and awe-inspiring image than that of Confederate Colonel John Singleton Mosby of Virginia.

The epitome of the Southern cavalier, Colonel Mosby was a charismatic officer whose small band of partisans outwitted and outfought the Union army on the fields and farmlands of northern Virginia. So great was the panic inspired by this one officer’s military ingenuity, so prominent was the threat he created to the Union forces, that he came to be known in the north as more of a myth than a man.

Award-winning historical fiction and Southern romance author Jessica James penned a unique look at this iconic figure as a way to share this real-life soldier's story with her fiction fans. John Mosby was the model for her fictional character Colonel Alexander Hunter in her novel NOBLE CAUSE (originally called Shades of Gray).

Rather than a dry biography of the Confederate hero, this book takes readers on a journey with a ragtag group of Rebels who threw aside the established rules of warfare, effectively using fear as their weapon of choice and surprise as their watchword.

Read about this forgotten American Hero in the first of a series of books that look back on those who played a role in shaping our nation.
