ABOUT THE BOOK
the typical pro-North history book, General Thomas J. “Stonewall”
Jackson was a humorless slave-owner, a mediocre Confederate general, and
a traitor to the United States, who fought to preserve slavery and take
over the U.S. government. Here in the South we know that nothing could
be further from the truth. Actually Jackson was a fun-loving father and
husband, a superb military officer, and a non-slave owning Unionist who
detested slavery and joined the Confederate army to preserve the
original Constitution. But you needn’t take our word for it.
Popular award-winning Southern author Lochlainn Seabrook, a cousin of
Jackson, has compiled
over 500 footnoted quotes by the General, culminating in a one-of-a-kind
work that refutes even his harshest critics. The
Quotable Stonewall Jackson: Selections From the Writings and Speeches of
the South’s Most Famous General, profusely illustrated with rare
photos and illustrations, covers all of the salient points of Jackson’s
short but amazing life. It includes examples of his private letters, his
military dispatches, and his personal views on everything from
government, the military, the Union, and slavery, to secession,
marriage, child rearing, and education.
Discover the real “Old Jack,” as his soldiers lovingly called Stonewall,
in his own words in this biographical tour de force encompassing the
years 1824 to 1863. Here Seabrook takes the reader from Jackson's Huckleberry
Finn-like days as a runaway orphan on the Mississippi River, to his
youthful struggles at West Point; from his danger-filled exploits in the
Mexican-American War, to his well earned professorship at the Virginia
Military Institute; from his two dramatic marriages and three children,
to his mortal wounding by friendly fire at the Battle of Chancellorsville. Also included is a time line of Jackson’s life, a list
of his Civil War engagements, a Jackson family tree, unusual facts about
the General, a bibliography, and several letters written by his second
wife, Mary Anna Morrison.
The author’s copious and detailed notes provide excellent context to the
abundance of Jacksonian material. The sixth book in Seabrook’s
“Quotable” series, The Quotable Stonewall Jackson is the only book of
its kind, and is sure to become a Southern classic and a standard in the
field of American history.
An attractive, unique, affordable, and tourist-friendly work that will
appeal to both Civil War buffs and historical educators alike, The
Quotable Stonewall Jackson is the perfect addition to any retail
outlet, including not only bookstores, but Civil War sites, historic
houses, museum gift stores, antique shops, B&Bs, tack shops, motorcycle
shops, and gun stores.
Lochlainn Seabrook, winner of the prestigious Jefferson
Davis Historical Gold Medal, is the sixth great-grandson of
the Earl of Oxford and the author of over thirty popular
adult and children’s books. A seventh-generation
Kentuckian of Appalachian heritage—who is known as the
“American Robert Graves” after his celebrated English
cousin—Seabrook is an unreconstructed Southern historian and
poet with a thirty-year background in the War for Southern
Independence and Confederate studies and biography. He
is a member of the Sons of Confederate Veterans and the
National Grange, and lives with his wife and family in
historic Middle Tennessee, the heart of the Confederacy.

AMAZON: 5 STARS - "THIS IS THE BEST BOOK EVER!"
"I consider this book to be the FINAL SAY in regards to the life and
beliefs of Thomas 'Stonewall' Jackson. This book is a HUGE
amalgamation of most if not ALL of Jackson's writings, letters, and
correspondence. You cannot get a more in depth look at his
ideology than to look at his own writing! Mr. Seabrook does a
phenomenal job in putting all of this together!!!! TEN
STARS!!!!!!!! PERFECT!!!!! Exactly what I was seeking!!!!
God Bless All!" - Matthew Smathers
