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 guerilla 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. Includes an Index. "Since the close of the war, I have come to know Colonel Mosby personally, and somewhat intimately. . . . There were probably but few men in the South who could have commanded successfully a separate detachment, in the rear of an opposing army and so near the border of hostilities, as long as he did without losing his entire command." - Ulysses S. Grant
