John Pelham of Alabama by Rondel Rumburg is a wonderful book. It is the first full length biography in 45 years of JEB Stuart’s gallant Chief of Artillery. Others have told the story. At least three full biographies have been written, all of which are commendable. Articles, pamphlets, sketches of his life and family are legion, but they often fail to point out as clearly as Dr. Rumburg does.
This book needs to be on the shelf of any home where there is a desire that the youth of that family admire the right heroes, where the prayer of the parents is that the rising generation will want to be like those who love the Lord and do right regardless of difficulties or the cost.
