The Last Days of Stonewall Jackson recounts the events of that fateful nightâconsidered one of the most pivotal moments of the warâand the tense vigil that ensued as Jackson struggled with a foe even he could not defeat. From Guinea Station, where Jackson crosses the river to rest under the shade of the trees, the story follows Jacksonâs funeral and burial, the strange story of his amputated arm, and the creation and restoration of the building where he died (now known as the Stonewall Jackson Shrine). This newly revised and expanded second edition features more than 50 pages of fresh material, including almost 200 illustrations, maps, and eye-catching photos.
New appendices allow readers to walk in Jacksonâs prewar footsteps through his adopted hometown of Lexington, Virginia; consider the ways Jacksonâs memory has been preserved through monuments, memorials, and myths; and explore the misconceptions behind the Civil Warâs great What-If: âWhat if Stonewall had survived his wounds?â
With the engaging prose of master storytellers, Chris Mackowski and Kristopher White make The Last Days of Stonewall Jackson a must-read for Civil War novices and buffs alike."
