Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Stonewall Jackson depended on him; General Lee complimented him; Union soldiers admired him; and women in Maryland, Virginia, and even Pennsylvania adored him: Henry Kyd Douglas. During and shortly after the Civil War Douglas set down his experiences of great men and great days. In resonant prose, he wrote simply and intimately, covering the full emotional spectrum of a soldier's life. Here is one of the finest and most remarkable stories to come out of any war, written wholly firsthand from notes and diaries made on the battlefield.

About the Author

Henry Kyd Douglas was born in 1840 in Shepherdstown, West Virginia (then Virginia). He graduated from Franklin and Marshall College, and, in 1860, was admitted to the bar. He was the youngest member of Stonewall Jackson's staff, was wounded six times, and on more than one occasion was cited for bravery. At the close of the war he was in command of the Light Brigade. After the war Douglas practiced law in Hagerstown and became a prominent figure in legal, political, and military circles of Maryland. He died in 1903.
