“Jubilant at the outbreak of the Civil War and destitute in its aftermath, Lexington Virginia, ultimately rose from the ashes to rebuild in the shadow of the conflict’s legacy.  It is the final resting place of two famous Confederate generals, Robert E. Lee and Stonewall Jackson, and the home of two of the South’s most important war-era colleges, Washington College and the Virginia Military Institute.  Author Richard G. Williams presents the trials and triumphs of Lexington during the war, including harrowing narratives of Union general Hunter’s raid through the town, Lee’s struggle between Union and state allegiances and Jackson’s rise from professor to feared battlefield tactician.” -(From Back Cover)
