The book centers on the spiritual side of Jackson and how his faith helped him face death with courage. A historian's account of Jackson's last battle is given, the battle in which he was mortally wounded, Chancellorsville. Primary resources then describe the reaction in the local area, the Confederacy, and in the Union army via a newspaper account of Jackson's death, diary entries from the cadets at the Virginia Military Institute, and even a letter written by a Union soldier. There is a rare picture of Thomas J. Jackson at twenty-four years of age, a picture of one of the young diarists, a picture of the mourners around Jackson's grave, and pictures of VMI cadets around his grave. The book concludes with an analysis by a Virginia theologian and historian of Jackson's Christian faith.
