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.

Donald Vivian Bennett (May 9, 1915 – November 28, 2005) retired as a four-star general from the United States Army in 1974. He graduated from the United States Military Academy in 1940. Bennett then served overseas in World War II in North Africa, Sicily, and in the invasion of the European continent. On 6 June 1944, Lieutenant Colonel Bennett, along with the 62nd Armored Field Artillery Battalion which he commanded, landed with the second wave on D-Day. His party was subjected to a tremendous fire which inflicted 50 percent casualties. Observing that following units were pinned down on the beach, he assembled and reorganized the infantry assault companies, four tanks, and an antiaircraft unit. By redistributing the remaining officers and equipment he organized a sizable force and successfully assaulted the ridge. Lieutenant Colonel Bennett, in disregarding his own safety under such heavy enemy fire throughout the day, contributed to the establishment of the beachhead.
