Jefferson, NC: McFarland & Company, Inc., 2017. Presumed First Edition, First printing. Trade paperback. Format is approximately 7 inches by 10 inches. viii, 286 pages. Illustrations. Chapter Notes. Bibliography. Index. The author, who had a varied career that include Law Enforcement and Insurance, explored his inner writer and penned “William Edmondson "Grumble" Jones: The Life of a Cantankerous Confederate." This well researched and documented book chronicles a fellow Emory and Henry (and West Point) graduate from Southwest Virginia that has an ironic connection to his own Texas family. William Edmondson "Grumble" Jones (b. 1824) stands among the most notable Southwest Virginians to fight in the Civil War. The Washington County native graduated from Emory & Henry College and West Point. As a lieutenant in the "Old Army" between service in Oregon and Texas, he watched helplessly as his wife drowned during the wreck of the steamship Independence. He resigned his commission in 1857. Resuming his military career as a Confederate officer, he mentored the legendary John Singleton Mosby. His many battles included a clash with George Armstrong Custer near Gettysburg. An internal dispute with his commanding general, J.E.B. Stuart, resulted in Jones's court-martial conviction in 1863. Following a series of campaigns in East Tennessee and Southwest Virginia, he returned to the Shenandoah Valley and died in battle in 1864, leaving a heroic legacy.
