From the author: This book will provide readers with information insights into 40 of Mosby’s men. All of them were tempted and tested in the same crucible of war. Many carried the scares of their wartime experience–physically and emotionally. This book includes various stories associated with the members of the 43rd Battalion Virginia Cavalry and their exploits, including those published in newspapers of the period. Some are difficult to believe…and you are likely to find out that when it comes to “Mosby’s Men,” the truth is often more fantastic than any fiction.
