Description 

by Sharon B. Smith

Along with its legendary generals, the Civil War was known for its legendary horses, from Robert E. Lee’s Traveller to William T. Sherman’s Lexington. But perhaps none gained as much fame as Stonewall Jackson’s Little Sorrel. Formerly a Union officer’s mount, the small steed accompanied Jackson through his most famous campaigns. He was a horse of great personality and disposition. He was strong and almost tireless, carrying the general up to forty miles a day. He was not easily spooked. And he was with Jackson when he was mortally wounded by friendly fire at the battle of Chancellorsville. Sharon B. Smith offers a moving portrait of the bond between Jackson and Little Sorrel and of the horse’s enduring fame long after the war ended.
