Forgotten Stonewall of the West (Garland Reference Library of the) Reviews
An excellent biography of Confederate Major General John Stevens Bowen. Had Bowen been in charge of Vicksburg instead of Pemberton, Grant would have had a very difficult time taking the place. The only draw back I could find is how the author tends to put down Patrick Cleburne because he is often referred to as the Stonewall of the West. I wish all these guys who write biographies would just focus on the guy their writing about instead of trying to put down other hero's to make theirs look better.
