KIRKUS REVIEW

A biography that points out both the genius of the General and the eccentricities of the man opens with Jackson presiding over the official execution of John Brown after Harper's Ferry. Skipping ahead and back, to fill in the gaps, Burke Davis does a bang up job with his book, for there is hardly a moment throughout the Civil War in which he doesn't know what Jackson was doing and all his knowledge forms a base for a completely fascinating and stirring record.
