A Meteor Shining Brightly: Essays on Maj. Gen. Patrick R. Cleburne by Mauriel Phillips Joslyn


This collection of essays by various historians covers Cleburne’s life from his immigration as a young man to the United States, his experiences becoming a self-made man in Arkansas, and how he joined the Confederate Army to defend the state in which he and his family had been given a fresh start. His rise through the ranks was limited because he had advocated arming slaves to support the Confederate cause. He died during an impossible charge on Franklin, Tennessee and Jefferson Davis honored him with the nickname, “Stonewall of the West.”
