"A scholar of the Civil War era, Rumburg has done all interested in that time period a great service by providing this biographical study of both Jackson's pious wife and daughter. One of the world's foremost authorities on Stonewall Jackson, Rumburg has written numerous articles and books on the life of the famed general. It is Dr. Rumburg's earnest prayer that the young ladies of this generation would rise to the shining example of the virtuous women, set by Mrs. Jackson and her daughter Julia." - John Huffman
