The Christian Testimony of Major-General James Ewell Brown Stuart
FROM THE BACK COVER:
“The Life of Major General J.E.B. Stuart, the ‘eyes and ears of Lee,’ was a great example of valor, zeal, and devotion to God. His exploits will not only give readers valuable insight into the War Between the States, but will also reveal Stuart’s true source of courage - his Christian faith.”

FROM THE FORWORD - by Col. J.E.B. Stuart IV:
As the great-grandson of Major-General James Ewell Brown Stuart I have often been asked for an opinion of this great man’s legacy to the nation, and how he should be remembered. Although my answer has changed, as I have grown older, one central theme has endured through the years: He was a man who fought for a cause that he deeply believed in with tenacity and a steadfast commitment that is remarkable by any standard.
My great-grandfather knew how to organize and lead men in combat, his assessment skills were second to none, and he had no equal in technical proficiency in the development and use of cavalry. As a result, he played a major role in developing the doctrines that still shape mobile warfare today. If you were to visit an Armored Cavalry [tank] Regiment today and ask the Commanding Officer to describe the unit’s strategy he would describe it in terms very similar to those developed by General Stuart during the War for Southern Independence.
Many books have been written about my great-grandfather, his military career, his rise through the ranks to command of the Confederate Cavalry, his great exploits in battle, the victories he won, and even his tragic and untimely death in the service of his country. But to my knowledge, this is the first and only book to be written entirely on the Christian faith and personal character of General Stuart. While many authors have written on all that my grandfather did, Dr. Ed DeVries has written this book to help show us the inner faith and spirit of this great man.
General Stuart possessed an integrity, personal character, and convictions of conscience sadly lacking in many men today. He was a faithful Christian man with a strong biblical belief. While General Stuart did not fear men or bullets, he did fear God, and this was the true reason for all of his successes in life, both as a man and as a soldier. J.E.B. Stuart’s faith was his “center of gravity.” It was the foundation upon which all of his life and actions rested.
This short, well put together book, composed largely of excerpts from my grandfather’s own writing, will give the reader great insight into the faith and character that was Major-General James Ewell Brown Stuart.
