History of the Laurel Brigade by William N. McDonald
Book DescriptionFirst printed in 1907, this volume presents a nearly contemporary view of the lauded Confederate unit. Recruited from the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia (with many troops volunteering from nearby Maryland), this Confederate cavalry unit fought under General Stonewall Jackson early in the Civil War. Led by one of the grandest "cavaliers" of them all - General Turner Ashby - until his death in early 1862, the unit eventually formed part of General J.E.B. Stuart's cavalry corps, moving back and forth between the tidewater and the Valley as military necessity dictated.

Author Biography - William N. McDonald
William N. McDonald served as an ordnance officer in the Laurel Brigade. After the Civil War, he remained active in veterans' affairs and, late in the century, began this history. After McDonald's death in 1898, Bushrod C. Washington took up the task of editing and completing the work. Eric J. Mink, a Civil War historian with the National Park Service, has written the introduction for the new edition of this memoir and has prepared the volume's first index.
