Cavalryman of the Lost Cause: A Biography of J.E.B. Stuart
“Jeb” Stuart was one of the most brilliant and colorful personalities in U.S. military history. Jeffrey Wert is one of America’s foremost Civil War historians. This potent combination allows the reader to examine the critical role the flamboyant Stuart played in the main Confederate Army in the eastern theater. Wert clearly proves Stuart was far more of a creative and thoroughly professional cavalry officer than the showman many believe. This is a superbly written biography of “the greatest cavalry officer ever foaled in America” as well as a concise account of Robert E. Lee’s army and campaigns.
