Born in Lincolnton, North Carolina, in 1837, Stephen Dodson Ramseur rose meteorically through the military ranks. Graduating from West Point in 1860, he joined the Confederate army as a captain. By the time of his death near the end of the war at the Battle of Cedar Creek, he had attained the rank of major general in the Army of Northern Virginia. He excelled in every assignment and was involved as a senior officer in many of the war's most important conflicts east of the Appalachians.

Book Description:

"This treasure-trove of Stephen Dodson Ramseur's candid and thoughtful letters to his family, friends, and wife lays bare the innermost thoughts and emotions of a young Southerner devoted to securing the Confederacy's independence. It is destined to take a prominent place among the classics of primary Civil War literature."--Gordon C. Rhea, author of In the Footsteps of Grant and Lee

From the Inside Flap:

Stephen Dodson Ramseur (1837-1865) rose meteorically through the Confederate military ranks. He excelled in every assignment and was involved as a senior officer in many of the war's most important conflicts east of the Appalachians. His letters--over 180 of which are collected and transcribed here by George Kundahl--provide his incisive observations on these military events. At the same time, they offer rare insight into the personal opinions of a high-ranking Civil War officer.
