  • Covers the deaths of 124 generals, including Stonewall Jackson, Albert Sidney Johnston, Jeb Stuart, James B. McPherson, John Reynolds, and numerous others

Over 400 Confederate and 580 Union soldiers rose to the rank of general in the Civil War. Of them, more than 1 in 10 would die, an astounding 124 in all 78 for the South and 46 for the North. Weaving their stories into a seamless narrative of the entire war, Smith paints a fascinating and often moving portrait of the final moments of some of the finest American warriors who have ever lived.
