Description

During the Civil War, Confederate John Singleton Mosby led the Forty-third Battalion, Virginia Cavalry, better known as Mosby's Rangers, in many bold and daring operations behind Union lines. Following the war, Mosby stayed in touch with several of his closest confidants, one of whom was former captain and Baptist minister Samuel Forrer Chapman. ""Take Sides with the Truth"" is a collection of more than eighty letters written by Mosby to Chapman. Published for the first time in their entirety, they reveal Mosby's innermost thoughts on many subjects, such as his severe criticism of General Robert E. Lee's staff officers and his decades-long crusade to clear the name of his friend and mentor J. E. B. Stuart in the Gettysburg campaign.
