O Laughing River will appeal to all military buffs, as well as those interested in the American Civil War. It recounts the life of "Stonewall" Jackson, a charismatic leader of genius, who led his troops against the Yankees with assurance, courage and success. He had that same gift of the "common touch" as other inspirational leaders such as Lincoln and JFK, Nelson and Princess Diana. Virtually worshipped by those he led, the mere appearance of "Old Jack" would be enough to rouse the renowned "Rebel Yell". He had immense powers of concentration and was, at all times, totally focused on his objectives. He died aged thirty-nine, accidentally wounded by his own troops, but such was the appeal of the leader and the man, that the whole South mourned, and he was praised even by the Northern enemy.
