According to 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.

"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
