9781581825657: Stonewall Jackson: The Black Man's Friend

Many historians have touched on Thomas Stonewall"" Jackson's relationship with African Americans in light of his Christian convictions. ""Stonewall Jackson: The Black Man's Friend"" explores an aspect of his life that is both intriguing and enlightening: his conversion to Christianity and how it affected his relationship with Southern Blacks. Covering the origin of Jackson's awakening to faith, the book challenges some widely held beliefs, including the assumption that this spiritual journey did not begin until his adulthood. Furthermore, Richard G. Williams Jr. examines a paradox of Jackson's life: his conversion to Christianity was encouraged by Southern slaves, many of whom he would in turn minister to one day. The book examines Jackson's documented youthful pangs of conscience regarding the illiteracy of American slaves?and how Providence ultimately came to use him to have a lasting and positive impact on Southern slaves.""

The descendant of three Confederate soldiers and a twenty-six year veteran Sunday-school teacher, he has lectured at Liberty Universtiy's annual Civil War Seminar and is the author of The Maxims of Robert E. Lee for Young Gentlemen. Williams is active in a number of historical preservationist organizations and lives in Virginia's Shenandoah Valley.

Review:

"It is inspiring . . . Jackson's faith led him to show kindness to those around him, including the slaves." -- Steven E. Woodworth, Ph.D., author - While God is Marching On: The Religious World of Civil War Soldiers

"a skillful interweaving by Williams of . . . research with. . . inspirational language . . . the reader barely notices the actual history lesson taking place." -- Human Events

"Exhaustively researched, teeming with useful nuggets, and written with an undertone of faith that Jackson himself would have admired, this study clears the air of a lot of myth-accidental and otherwise. The narrative surprises and informs, memorializes and inspires, all at the same time." -- Professor James I. Robertson, Jr., Alumni Distinguished Professor in History Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University and author of "Stonewall Jackson - The Man, The Soldier, The Legend"
