1898 John Mosby Civil War Reminiscences Confederate Virginia Jeb Stuart Cavalry

“Since the close of the war, I have come to know Colonel Mosby personally, and somewhat intimately. . . . There were probably but few men in the South who could have commanded successfully a separate detachment, in the rear of an opposing army and so near the border of hostilities, as long as he did without losing his entire command.”

– Ulysses S. Grant, on Mosby

John S. Mosby was a Confederate officer in the American Civil War known for his command of cavalry battalions. His war experiences were recorded in his personal memoirs, or ‘War Reminiscences’, much of which deals with his commands leading directly to guerilla warfare in Northern Virginia, which became known as Mosby’s Confederacy.
