Synopsis

On the night of May 2, 1863, theSouth's most beloved general, Thomas J. Stonewall Jackson, was shot whilereconnoitering the Union defenses near Chancellorsville, Virginia. On May 10, hedied of pneumonia which he contracted as a result of his weakened condition. Ithad always been assumed that he was accidentally shot by his own men, and theincident was dismissed as an act of capricious fate.With this novel, author BenjaminKing makes a startling, thought-provoking contribution to the genre ofspeculative historical fiction. Was Jackson mistakenly shot by his own men asthe historians tell us or was he the victim of an elaborate assassination plotdevised in the highest levels of the Union government?Following the resoundingConfederate victory at Fredericksburg, the government in Washington was throwninto a panic. Salmon Portland Chase, Secretary of the Treasury, realized thatthe North must act quickly or the war would be lost. A plan began tomaterialize, one which would permanently cripple the South by depriving it ofits most capable, most irreplaceable corps commander, Stonewall Jackson.Painstakingly researched, ABullet for Stonewall traces the movements of a Union assassin as heoperates behind Southern lines, waiting for the one opportunity that will assurethe North of victory.A native of New Haven, Connecticut,Benjamin King now resides in Newport News, Virginia. A graduate of theUniversity of Connecticut, he served in Vietnam with the 101st Airborne Divisionand was awarded the Bronze Star for heroism. King is former military historianfor the Casemate Museum at Fort Monroe. Currently, he designs simulations forthe U.S. Army Transportation School.

Benjamin King serves as command historian for the U. S. Army Transportation Center and Fort Eustis. He served in Vietnam with the 101st Airborne Division (the Screaming Eagles), and was awarded both the Purple Heart and the Bronze Star. King's military service has included work with the Pershing missile systems, and his experience and knowledge have led to published articles in Field Artillery Journal and Vietnam magazine, as well as an appearance on the Discovery Channel's Machines That Won the War . His two other historical novels, A Bullet for Stonewall and A Bullet for Lincoln, are both published by Pelican.
