Pin It



by John Waugh
No solitary group of males at West Position–or probably any academy–has been so indelibly composed into history as the class of 1846. The names are legendary: Thomas “Stonewall” Jackson, George B. McClellan, Ambrose Powell Hill, Darius Nash Couch, George Edward Pickett, Cadmus Marcellus Wilcox, and George Stoneman. The course fought in 3 wars, created 20 generals, and remaining the country a long lasting legacy of bravery, brilliance, and bloodshed.This interesting, remarkably intimate chronicle traces the life of these unforgettable males–their instruction, their personalities, and the activities in which they manufactured their names and fulfilled their fates. Drawing on letters, diaries, and individual accounts, John C. Waugh has prepared a collective biography of masterful proportions, as vivid and engrossing as fiction in its re-creation of these brilliant figures and their pivotal roles in American history.From the Trade Paperback edition.
