Overview

In the Footsteps of Stonewall Jackson (In the Footsteps Series) by Johnson

Loved by his men, feared by his enemies, understood by perhaps no one, Thomas J. "Stonewall" Jackson was one of the finest strategists and most psychologically complex military leaders in history. This book seeks not to explain the man but to define him by the places he knew. It visits sites from Jackson's orphan days, those of his military education and early postings, those of his major and minor battles, and those of his wounding, death, and burial. Jackson fans will certainly want to see Manassas, the Shenandoah Valley. Sharpsburg. Fredericksburg, the Seven Days' sites, and Chancellorsville. But they will be just as interested in lesser known places like the church in New York City where Jackson was baptized, the fort-turned-playground in Florida where he quit the United States Army, the museum that holds the stuffed hide of Little Sorrel, his war horse, and the graves of the man who gave up his West Point slot for Jackson and the Confederate officer who ordered the volley that fatally wounded the general.
