Abstract:

Stonewall Jackson depended on him; General Lee complimented him; Union soldiers admired him; and ladies in Maryland, Virginia, and even Pennsylvania adored him -- this dashing, handsome, lovable, young Henry Kyd Douglas. From his meeting with John Brown, alias Isaac Smith, shortly before the Brown Raid, through the long bitter years of the War Between the States, he clung to the Southern cause, fought its battles, and endured its defeats. During and shortly after the War he set down his experiences with great men and great days. In a resonant prose almost unique among soldiers, and rare among all men, he wrote as simply and intimately of history as though it were a jovial anecdote, spun out after dinner for the entertainment of friends. - Jacket flap.
