Excellant book and a very underappricated man. Things we take for granted today, like roadmaps and GPS were not known in the 1850's and 60's. Stonewall Jackson knew that knowledge of the local terrain was a huge advantage over his adversary and he knew that certain areas he would be passing in the future also needed to be mapped. Thus enters Jed Hotchkiss. A very talanted man but whose heart was in his work, not in the war. This book was very well written.

An excellent book on one of the most important figures on the staff of General Thomas J. "Stonewall" Jackson. Outstanding maps. Definitely a "must have" book for anyone interested in General Jackson & the Southern cause.

Stonewall Jackson's successful career can, in part, be directly attributed to his gifted topographer, Jedediah Hotchkiss; a man with a gifted eye for terrain. Whether as mapmaker, pathfinder, courier or staff officer, Hotchkiss continuously complimented his talented commander. To understand Jackson, one should know Hotchkiss; Miller's volume, particularly when taken in conjunction with Hotchkiss' own MAKE ME A MAP OF THE VALLEY, certainly facilitates understanding of Jackson's campaigns. Miller clearly delineates Hotchkiss' many skills in an easily read text supported by beautiful full-color renditions of some of Jed's maps, meanwhile teaching the reader a great deal about military topography, map-making and the Civil War in the East. Any student of Jackson, the Valley Campaign, or Civil War staff operations should have this book. A well-done, lovely book about one of the war's most interesting characters.
