Description

Acclaimed historian Jeffry D. Wert presents the first full-scale biography in more than twenty years of J. E. B. Stuart, the most colorful---and controversial---Confederate cavalryman.

Mortally wounded in battle when he was only thirty-one, the dashing J. E. B. Stuart, the South's "plumed warrior knight," stands with Stonewall Jackson as one of the Confederacy's most revered martyrs. Union General John Sedgwick called him "the greatest cavalryman ever foaled in America." Jeffry D. Wert, however, offers a more balanced assessment in this comprehensive biography.

Wert's narrative portrait of Stuart---audacious and daring in battle, contentious with his staff and subordinates---is fast-paced and compelling, rich in telling details and human interest stories, yet objective, critical, and complete. Based on the most extensive research yet done utilizing governmental and archival sources, Wert's biography examines Stuart's controversial performance at Gettysburg and elsewhere.
