Dabney, Robert L.
This volume gives the most authoritative side of Thomas Jonathan 'Stonewall' Jackson (1824-1863) through the eyes of his wife Mary Anna Jackson.
The wife of Thomas Jonathan 'Stonewall' Jackson wrote this loving and intimate biography of her husband, not as a reassessment of his military campaigns, but as a memorial to his life as a compassionate and faithful husband and father.
We see Jackson as a spiritual leader in his home and community--leading family devotions, teaching Sunday School, and witnessing of his faith in Christ to the soldiers under his command in the war.
