Title: From Mosby's Command: Newspaper Letters and Articles by and About John S. Mosby and His Rangers
Author: Horace Mewborn
Notes: 295 pp., Dust Jacket

Product Description:
One of the last frontiers for research on the war that raged across the American landscape from 1861 to 1865 is newspapers, both war-date and postwar. During the war soldiers and civilians wrote countless letters that were published in the daily and weekly journals. After the war the papers published innumerable articles from veterans recording their experiences, as well as their thoughts on how the war was fought or how it should have been fought. This book is composed of select letters that were published both during and after the war about John Mosby and his Rangers.
