    I must confess to having read neither of them; however, @Nathanb1 swears by Vandiver, so I consider that a recommendation. For beginners, I recommend They Called Him Stonewall by Burke Davis.

    Farwell's book is good, modern biography. It is substantially less admiring of Jackson than Robertson and also the bibliography seems a little short for a 500-plus book. But it's readable and useful.

    Thank you for both of your insights.I have heard that Farwell's is good but wasn't sure.I will have to read They called him Stonewall to start off with.By any chance has anybody read the one by Rafuse and know if it is a good one as well?
