Description - The Stonewall Brigade in the Civil War by Steve Smith
Commanded by Thomas J. Jackson and made up of the 2nd, 4th, 5th, 27th and 33rd Virginia Infantry Regiments, plus the Rockbridge Artillery Battery, the unit was officially Virginia's First Brigade. This changed forever at the Battle of First Manassas when in the face of a seemingly overwhelming Federal attack, General Bee, an adjacent Confederate brigade commander, reportedly said, Yonder stands Jackson like a stone wall; let's go to his assistance. Rally behind the Virginians! This book describes the Stonewall Brigade in combat from first mustering to bitter end, when only 210 ragged and footsore soldiers remained of the 6,000 who'd served through the war. The Stonewall Brigade contains detailed order of battle charts, tables of organization and equipment, and technical specifications of the brigade's weapons. It also features special sidebars on the unit's commanders. Color maps illustrate the brigade's major battles; and a combination of vintage photographs, new images of contemporary reenactors, and Civil War-era paintings and drawings helps to bring the Stonewall Brigade to life.
