Isaac Ridgeway Trimble, 1802-1888, was a West Point graduate, engineer, railroader, inventor, international traveler, leader in the Episcopal Church, and, most famously, a soldier. Trimble distinguished himself as a field commander in the fiercest fighting of the Civil War, including the battles at Cross Keys in the Valley Campaign, Second Manassas, and Gettysburg. He earned high praise from the enigmatic Stonewall Jackson, who described Trimble's battlefield leadership as the 'most brilliant' he had witnessed. His actions in the early days of the War led the Federal government to brand Trimble as 'the most dangerous rebel' in captivity after his wounding and capture at Gettysburg. Following the Civil War, General Trimble remained active as an engineer, writer, speaker, and served many years as Vice-President of the Southern Historical Society.

MEDIA REVIEWS
The book is more than a war story; it's a look at an interesting period of time when technology was racing forward, and when a country that was largely frontier was still trying to define itself. -- Stephen Turnbull * Business Lexington *
