   schema:description ""Confederate Colonel John Singleton Mosby (1833-1916) was only one of a number of heroes to emerge during the Civil War, yet he holds a singular place in the American imagination. He is the irrepressible rebel with a cause, the horseman who emerges from the forest to protect the embattled farmer and his household and bring retribution to the invader. Mosby was the fabled "Gray Ghost" of the Confederacy, a mythic cavalry officer who operated with virtual impunity behind Union lines near Washington, D.C. The Mosby Myth is the first book devoted to explaining Mosby's place in American culture, myth, and legend. The book provides not just a biography of John Mosby's life, but a study of his legacy. Well-written and informative, this book is sure to provoke new thought about the effect of the memory of Mosby--and the memory of the Civil War--on American society and culture."--PRODUCT DESCRIPTION."@en ;
