This reprint of a very rare book was extremely popular in its time and was widely used in schools and libraries throughout the South. This book was one of the source books referenced in Burke Davis” classic biography of JEB Stuart The Last Cavalier. It is a true classic first published in 1917. At age 17, Luther Hopkins was proud to serve with Confederate General JEB Stuart and he draws a vivid picture of his adventures. This is a delightful, yet serious, account of the War Between the States.
