Overview

An article excerpted from "The Century" magazine, June, 1885; pages 280-293; the further title reads: "Including His Relations to the Peninsular Campaign." — A racy, firsthand account of "Stonewall" Jackson's famous Valley Campaign in 1861, by one of the Southern Confederacy's leading artillery and cavalry officers (John Imboden rose from the rank of Captain to that of Brigadier-General). — This is an easy-to-follow narrative of one of history's most brilliant strategic campaigns along with background information not easily found elsewhere. Imboden's personal knowledge of the country, connections with Virginia's political leaders, and friendship with General Jackson makes for a valuable primary source account for anyone interested in the "big picture" of that campaign as well as personal incidents which shed light on the man whom Imboden considered "a master mind".
