Arrives in 3-7 Business Days
First published by UNC Press in 1959, this biography tells the story of Alexander (Sandie) Swift Pendleton, a high-spirited and intelligent Confederate staff officer from Virginia who, at the age of twenty-two, won the confidence, admiration, and affection of Stonewall Jackson. Pendleton began as ordnance officer of the Stonewall Brigade of the Army of the Shenandoah in the spring of 1861. By January of 1863, he had become chief of staff of the famed Second Corps of the Army of Northern Virginia and was recognized as a brilliant staff officer--even as Stonewall's Man. Wounded in the battle of Fisher's Hill, Pendleton died five days before his twenty-fourth birthday. Based on diaries, letters, and manuscripts, the poignant and revealing story of Pendleton's life and Civil War experiences is set against a background of the campaigns in which he participated.
