Stonewall Jackson at Gettysburg

Douglas Lee Gibboney

  • Stonewall Jackson at Gettysburg

Stonewall Jackson survives his accidental wounding at the Battle of Chancellorsville and now this legendary general leads the advance of Robert E. Lee’s Confederate army as it invades the North. Jeb Stuart’s horsemen capture Pennsylvania’s state capital while the Blue and Gray maneuver for advantage near the little crossroads town of Gettysburg. It’s high tide for the Confederacy as the opposing armies prepare for the decisive struggle of the war.

“Douglas Gibboney takes the oldest and most often asked ‘what if’ question of the Civil War and gives it an interesting twist by answering it in his novel, Stonewall Jackson at Gettysburg, and who is to say that the scenario he offers might not have come to pass if Stonewall had lived to see Pennsylvania in July 1863?”

William C. Davis, author of An Honorable Defeat: The Last Days of the Confederate Government and numerous other Civil War titles.

“Douglas Lee Gibboney set out to persuade readers to put on their thinking caps while having great fun--and succeeded admirably. His believably imaginative account offers a splendid change of pace from the routine and ordinary. Few ‘what ifs’ of the war are so provocative, and hardly any are so interesting.”

Webb Garrison, author of Unusual Persons of the Civil War, Civil War Hostages, and Mutiny in the Civil War

“For the dedicated Civil War buff, or even the casual reader, this is an evening of reading pleasure.”

Thomas P. Lowry, M.D., author of The Story the Soldiers Wouldn’t Tell: Sex in the Civil War

“A compelling story of what might have been....a welcome addition to that fascinating literature.”
