Stonewall Jackson: The Good Soldier based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
Tate wrote about Jackson at the turn of the century when the memory of the civil war was still fresh and public opinion was against the South. His approach to the subject was audacious and strident, highlighting the admirable traits of General Jackson despite the common public opinions of him. While Tate¿s treatment of Jackson was motivated by his Southern pride, his facts are accurate and his work is a pleasure to read. Jackson was an admirable man who possessed uncommon integrity and he was arguably the greatest tactician that America has yet produced. I highly recommend this book to all who would know the man that Jackson was.
