Cavalryman of the Lost Cause: A Biography of J. E. B. Stuart, by Jeffry D. Wert. Integrates comprehensive archival and printed sources to describe a man shaped by a zest for life, religious faith and devotion to duty. The initial dominance of Confederate cavalry in the east during the Civil War was a product of Stuart's skills as leader and organizer, trainer and tactician. Above all he was a master at reconnaissance and screening. Wert's biography goes far in restoring Stuart's claim to be the greatest cavalry officer ever foaled in America.
