From Our Editors

Colonel John S. Mosby was one of the Confederacy's most effective and colorful cavalry leaders. Operating in Northern Virginia near Washington, D.C., Mosby's independent command waged guerrilla war behind Federal lines in what came to be called "Mosby's Confederacy". Mosby's Memoirs were written toward the end of his life and were published posthumously in 1917.
