Publisher's Summary

“In this brief sketch of our great Southern hero, I have endeavored to portray, amid the blaze of his matchless military genius, the unchanging rectitude of his conduct, the stern will-power by which he conquered all difficulties, his firm belief in an overruling Providence, and his entire submission to the Divine Will. These traits of character were the cornerstones upon which he reared the edifice of his greatness, and upon which the young people of our day will do well to build.”—Mary L. Williamson, 1898

Critic Reviews

“There is plenty of action for thrill seekers and many examples of leadership's principles for students. The simple vocabulary and short sentences provide an ideal introduction to the subject for younger readers, and the book's quality qualifies it as literature worthy of an expert's attention….James reads with the intention of the author to produce four informative and entertaining hours.” ( AudioFile)

Dull

you might as well read the wiki entry, as read this lifeless version of such a famous figure.

Very interesting man of God

Just like Oliver Cromwell king David And others Stonewall Jackson was a man of prayer And that's why He won battles.

The book is way too short.
