Description - The Stonewall Brigade in the Civil War by Steve Smith

The Stonewall Brigade is the most famous fighting unit of the American Civil war, not least for their losses - only 210 ragged, footsore survivors form an initial muster of 6,000! Officially, it was Virginia's First Brigade. Their status changed forever at the Battle of First Manassas. Attacked by seemingly overwhelming Federal forces, the brigade held their line, earning them and their commander Thomas Jackson the name "Stonewall", and giving rise to the cry "Rally behind the Virginians!" From founding to the bitter end, the history of the Stonewall Brigade is explored in this fascinating book - weapons specifications, ranks, order of battle charts, tables of equipment, special sidebars on the units commanders. Also included are colour maps illustrating the brigade's major battles, whilst a combination of vintage photographs, new images of contemporary re-enactments, Civil War era paintings and drawings bring this gritty, determined brigade to life.
