Jeb Stuart, one of the most dashing figures in the Civil War, led the Confederate Cavalry in the Shenandoah Valley and served as Robert E. Lee’s “eyes.”
The story, traced with admiration and affection, details Stuart’s boyhood in Virginia, his West Point education, his daring days in the U.S. Cavalry fighting the Indians, and his role in the tragic The War Between the States. Until his gallant death, Jeb Stuart maintained the balance of power in the Shenandoah Valley.
