    One thought on “Stonewall”

    1. I was so surprised to like this book as I have little interest in war memoirs, and I have to be honest but I I found it hard to comprehend that someone could have supported the "southern cause" and have a close walk with the Lord. This book actually changed my opinion. I never considered that there were soldiers who fought for the South who were not actually fighting for slavery. I'm not going to get into all of that herejust read it you'll see. But that's not why I loved this book. Stonewall's [...]

    2. A moving, detailed portrait of a truly great man. John J Dwyer writes with passion and humour, painting a vivid and gut-wrenching picture of war. There are some editorial issues--lots of exposition shoehorned into unlikely places, unevenness in style between Dwyer's writing and quotations from the actual historical characters, and a few groaners like "peaked" for "piqued" and "berthed" for "birthed", but that does little to damp the extraordinary power of a jawdropping bit of history.Now I know [...]

    3. This was a time when our country was torn apart. I learned that God does not take sides in war. He lives in the hearts of both. This war wasn't about slavery. Stonewall opposed slavery. I realize that our country isn't 'great' because God chose America. I believe we became a 'great' nation because of leaders like Stonewall who chose God first. If only we had leaders like this now. Who would dare to put their own lives at risk before the lives of their men. If so would we be sacrificing lives of [...]

    4. An excellently written novel covering Thomas "Stonewall" Jackson's life from the time he was a toddler to his death. Beautiful and tear-jerking! I absolutely loved this book! Before I read it I had no idea that he was married before he married Anna Jackson, and I had no idea that he knew the "Poetess of the Confederacy"! Beautiful, and thought-provoking, this book will leave you thinking long after you close the last page!

    5. I read it because I wanted to know more about the man that I hear so much about - living in the village where he won his last victory. The writing may have been exceptional, however I didn't like the man from beginning to end.

    6. Dwyer really portrayed all aspects of Stonewall's life, including how this godly man used the aspects of war as a means of witnessing to his men. It is a good biography to use while studying civil war. I also liked the fact that the author uses challenging words to increase vocabulary.

    7. A wonderful book about a great American general. I truly believe the tide of the war changed after the events in The Wilderness. Lee lost an amazing leader and a man of faith, both in his God and his cause.
