Our Review

Classic swashbuckling memoir of the well-beloved Prussian volunteer on “Jeb” Stuart’s staff. Vivid battle accounts, including Stuart’s famous “Ride around McClellan” during the Seven Days’ Battles, are given, as well as the jolly, devil-may-care life of the Confederate cavalrymen in the Army of Northern Virginia.
