Overview
"The Letters of Stonewall Jackson to His Wife"

HE CALLED HER "MY BELOVED ESPOSA" BECAUSE ANNA WAS HIS DEAREST LOVE ON THIS EARTH. IRONICALLY, WHILE THE GREAT MILITARY EXPLOITS OF GENERAL STONEWALL JACKSON ARE STUDIED IN MILITARY SCHOOLS THE WORLD OVER, AND HIS IRON WILL AND STERN SELF-DISCIPLINE HAVE BECOME LEGENDARY, LITTLE IS SAID ABOUT HIS REMARKABLE MARRIAGE TO MARY ANNA MORRISON. THE REAL THOMAS J JACKSON WAS A HUMBLE CHRISTIAN AND LOVING HUSBAND AND FATHER. THE TENDER AND INSTRUCTIVE LETTERS HE WROTE TO HIS WIFE ANNA ARE A MODEL OF GODLY LEADERSHIP AND COVENANTAL FAITHFULNESS. FROM THEIR COURTSHIP TO THEIR FINAL DAYS TOGETHER, BELOVED BRIDE TRACES THE TRUE STORY OF THIS REMARKABLE COUPLE THROUGH THE LETTERS OF GENERAL JACKSON TO HIS WIFE. EVEN IN THE MIDST OF THE MOST ARDUOS MILITARY CAMPAIGHNS, STONEWALL TOOK THE TIME TO SEND HOME EXTENSIVE LETTERS OF LOVE AND DEVOTION. THROUGH ALL OF THIS, GENERAL JACKSON PROVES HIMSELF TO BE A MODEL EXAMPLE FOR CHRISTIAN HUSBANDS OF THE TWENTY-FIRST CENTURY--ESPECIALLY THROUGH HIS DEDICATION TO LIVING FOR GOD'S GLORY AND TRUSTING IN HIS PROVIDENTIAL CARE.

Publishers Description
Beloved Bride: He called her "my beloved esposa" because Anna was his dearest love on this earth. Ironically, while the great military exploits of General Stonewall Jackson are studied in military schools the world over and his iron will and stern self-discipline has become legendary, little is said about his remarkable marriage. Even in the midst of the most arduous military campaigns, Stonewall took the time to send home extensive letters of love and devotion.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
The Heart of a Good Man  Apr 21, 2004
In Beloved Bride: The Letters of Stonewall Jackson to His Wife, Bill Potter presents some of Stonewall's letters to his wife, Anna, written during the war. These letters give a beautiful insight into the mind of the military hero. They show his deep love and respect for his wife, his country and his God.

There are glimpses into their everyday life, as he discusses gardening, tithes, and his consent for one of their slaves to marry. He referrs to Anna as his "dove" or "beloved" or "esposa" and makes it clear that he dearly loves her.

Very little is ever mentioned of the hardships of camplife or war. My guess is that he wished to shield her from that as much as possible. He continually encouraged her to put her faith in God for his protection and reminded her that his life was in God's hands.

His letters show him as a gentle, though strong and steadfast, man, with great respect for others trying hard to live the Christian life. If he treated the troops under his command with the same respect that he seemed to show in all the other aspects of his life, it is no wonder they cheered when they saw him.

Over all, this is a warm, uplifting read that gave me an even greater respect and admiration for Stonewall. It is a nice change to see the private life of a hero match his public life.

 
Captures the Sterling Character of Jackson in His Letters  Jul 21, 2003
~Beloved Bride: The Letters of Stonewall Jackson to His Wife~ is a compilation of love letters written by the great Confederate general to his beloved wife. Bill Potter and the Vision Forum have put together a remarkable compilation of letters of the great southern General Thomas Jonathan Jackson better known posthomously after the war as 'Stonewall' Jackson. These letters chronicle Jackson's courtship leading to his marriage with his beloved wife Anna Morrison Jackson as well as the turbulent wartorn years that follow. You really get a feel for the anguish of the soldier on the field-who longs to be at home with wife and child-but realizes he has a duty to country to fulfill. Stonewall stands out not only as a man of brilliant military genius, but as a man of dignity, honor and integrity. He was an accomplished West Point graduate and a renowned professor at VMI. Though he remained a humble and pious man with a deep abiding faith in the Gospel of Christ and a firm steadfast belief in the sovereignty of God. The editor Bill Potter does a remarkable job at offering a cursory background on Jackson and his character. He was an exemplary man of character who loved his wife Anna and his child very deeply. Sadly, he was accidently shot by his own men. But Jackson knew that all things work together for good to those who love God and are called according to God's purposes (Romans 8:28). (FYI This was one of Jackson's favorite passages of Scripture.) The cover art features a photo shot from the recent blockbuster Gods and Generals of Stephen Lang who played Jackson. I also recommend _Christ in the Camp_, which is a story of religious revival and proclamation of the Gospel during the war between the states by the same publisher.
 
A Tender Man  Jul 15, 2003
This book shows how kind and loving Stonewall Jackson was. It is quick reading and easy to understand. It shows you his devotion and shows you the true Stonewall and not the mean and tough person history books portray.
 
Wonderful!  May 25, 2003
This is a wonderful little book and shows, believe it or not, the "tender" side of General Jackson. While the mere mention of Jackson's immortal sobriquet, "Stonewall," would strike fear in the hearts of Union Army commanders, his wife would one day write of, "...that tender and exquisite phase of his inner life." This book reveals Jackson as a "humble Christian and loving husband father" and bolsters the contention that Jackson is a worthy hero for men and boys today. Buy the book. (Rick Williams, author of "The Maxims of Robert E. Lee for Young Gentlemen.")
