I knew Stonewall Jackson was a Christian, but this volume, though few in pages, reveals his heart for God. There's a disclaimer at the end that notes his imperfections are not clear in this little bit of his life and suggests several other biographies that give a more complete picture of the man and the Christian.

My awe and love for this amazing couple was just made more profound after reading this endearing little book. Splendid.

If you have an interest in Civil War history or simply like reading the love letters of historic figures, then I'd highly recommend this book. Stonewall Jackson's military genius is a common topic, but this book provides a window into his personal life, revealing a man of faith, honor, and sentimentality. I have even more respect for him now that I have read some of his personal writings.

This is an amazing book! The language and tone that Jackson uses with his beloved is magnificient and worthy of emulation. The manner in which he discusses God and God's Providence is generally above reproach and reflects a profound humility and grasp of the nature of self and the Holiness of God. Five stars!

General Jackson was an astounding man, a good husband, and a priceless moral figure. This book shows the reader a man much different that what you would expect from a hardened war General. Very good read.

A beautiful collection of letters between a man and wife who were fiercely devoted first to God, and then to each other...and who were completely and totally in love!

Just as the title says, the letters of Stonewall Jackson to his wife. Those, and also the history of Jackson told by William Potter.

An easy read but very insightful to the character of the man and glimpses of the lifestyle of the Civil War soldiers.
