John Singleton Mosby was born in 1833 at the home of his grandfather, a Revolutionary War veteran, in Powhatan County, Virginia.

Ordered to serve a short jail sentence, Mosby read law with his defense counsel and eventually established his own practice. In 1915, as Mosby was nearing the end of his life, the University of Virginia presented him with a heavy bronze medal on which was inscribed a flowery tribute from his "alma mater." Like this book?
