by James I. Robertson, Jr.
"Few military figures in American history have been more written about than Jackson, but Robertson, through diligent research, uncovers a great deal of fresh material about the general's public and private life. He shapes that material into an engrossing, detailed narrative that is the indispensable first place to turn for anyone interested in the great Confederate general." - Gary W. Gallagher, Pennsylvania State University, author of "Stephen Dodson Ramseur: Lee's Gallant General"

by Robert Lewis Dabney
"This work is the first authorized biography of the great Confederate general. Based on correspondence, official records, family documents, and a close personal relationship with the general which began when he served as his adjutant in the Valley and Peninsula Campaigns, Dr. Dabney presents a personal account of his life and military service. General Jackson's faith in Christ and outspoken reliance upon God's Providence are clearly presented without apology. This biography has been closely consulted by every subsequent study of Stonewall Jackson." - Editorial -Trinity Book Service

by Markinfield Addey
"The Life and Military Career of Thomas Jonathan Jackson is Markinfield Addey's mesmerizing account of General Stonewall Jackson, a man who was deemed to be one of the most brilliant commanders of the Civil War. With a skillful, though sometimes peculiar, style of fighting, his charisma inspired confidence in his troops, firing up their enthusiasm for the cause while fearlessly and courageously obeying his every command. Soldiers from both the North and South revered Jackson as a man "noble in heart and chivalric in action"- from the publisher

by Benjamin King
Historical accounts say that Stonewall Jackson was accidentally killed by his own men at the battle of Chancellorsville. King, however, believes there is still room for speculation on this point. Could the North have been behind the loss of the South's most successful general? "Espionage, romance, and history combine in an engrossing tale."-- Library Journal.
by Dennis Norman
While much has been written about General Thomas (Stonewall) Jackson, the great tactician of the Confederate Army, little attention has been given to young Tom Jackson during his formative years. Tom Jackson was orphaned at an early age, was awkward, shy and labeled by some as slow to learn. This is the story of the exceptional boy who, through determination, hard work and a little good luck, overcame his disadvantages to become the legendary General Stonewall Jackson, an honored leader of men.
