Thomas Jonathan "Stonewall" Jackson (January 21, 1824 – May 10, 1863) served as a Confederate general (1861–1863) during the American Civil War, and became one of the best-known Confederate commanders after General Robert E.

Bob Krick is an excellent writer. He has a bias as an unabashed fan of Stonewall Jackson and the Southern Cause, so the reader should be aware that the book has a definite 'Southern perspective'. None-the-less, this is a great book with many interesting stories about the common soldier as well as the revered Stonewall. Krick is a renowned historian and is an excellent speaker of multiple CW topics. His book is thoroughly researched (as are all of his writing endeavors). Well worth the price and don't be afraid to take the book along with you to the battlefield. The only drawback to the book (and many CW books) is the lack of enough maps. However, maps can be accessed through the Civil War Trust and other CW sites that would help with understanding the battle. (PS - the Cedar Mountain is in very pristine condition and much is being done to encourage interpretation - well worth the trip if one is near Culpeper, VA.)

Krick's narrative is superb. His attention to detail is outstanding. He makes the reader feel as though they are there. Excellent work.

Stonewall Jackson at Cedar Mountain is an aptly named book. Krick focuses the majority of his efforts on the Confederate high command at Cedar Mountain, and when Union actors are introduced they are a portrayed as simple buffoons and not the complicated, yet flawed individuals that they really were. In addition the vast majority of the sources the Krick uses are post war memoirs that are filled with Lost Cause memory. I was looking for a well researched book on the battle, which I have walked over many a time, however it has yet to be written. I for one can not wait for a book that will objectively look at Jackson's actions in a battle that he almost lost.

This study of a relatively minor battle is almost painfully thorough, but it tells the story almost exclusively from the Confederate side. I found myself wishing that Krick had given more attention to the Union side, too. And I have to admit that, while he acknowledges Stonewall Jackson's personal idiosyncrasies, he is a great (perhaps excessive?) admirer of the general's military prowess. At the end of the day, it's not at all clear what this battle accomplished -- either strategically or even tactically; to be sure, the Confederates successfully provoked a Union attack, held their position, and forced the Union forces from the field, but they abandoned that field less than two days after the battle. In short, I'm not sure the story merits a 397-page telling, especially one that's told from only one side. I don't accuse Krick of bias, as some commentators do, but I do think he should have taken a broader (and perhaps a less fine-grained) perspective.
