A very well written biography on one of the most promising young men in the Southern army: Sandie Pendleton. Truly it could have been of his death, How are the mighty fallen in the midst of the battle! 2 Samuel 1:25

Really fantastic biography of Pendleton. Read the book in preparation for a reenacting event and found Bean's work to be both informing and encouraging. Though not the main subject of the book, Pendleton's almost-adopted-son relationship to Stonewall Jackson (lightly touched on in the film Gods and Generals) is deeply meaningful, particularly in the context of Pendleton's life, the war, and the protocols of aiding the general.

I would definitely recommend this book as the best resource on Sandie

If there's one book I can (and do) read over and over, it's Stonewall's Man. If you want to step into the life of the Confederacy's once rising star, this is the essential read. Through excerpts of his letters, you get to know Sandie Pendleton. Bean did an excellent job, start to finish in shining the spotlight on this wonderful young man. Loved it, loved it, loved it.

This beautifully written biography tells the story of Alexander Pendleton, a Civil War officer who fought under the famed Stonewall Jackson. From his childhood years to his unexpected death at the age of 24, this book not only chronicles Pendleton's extraordinary life but also offers a glimpse of the complex time period in which "Sandie" found himself.
