Synopsis : In this collection of well-written and lucid essays, the life, career, and impact of Irish Major General Patrick R. Cleburne is definitively reassessed. A Meteor Shining Brightly corrects inaccuracies in published accounts of Cleburne’s life, and explores aspects of Cleburne’s life that made him unique among Civil War generals.

This collection of essays by various historians covers Cleburne’s life from his immigration as a young man to the United States, his experiences becoming a self-made man in Arkansas, and how he joined the Confederate Army to defend the state in which he and his family had been given a fresh start. His rise through the ranks was limited because he had advocated arming slaves to support the Confederate cause. He died during an impossible charge on Franklin, Tennessee and Jefferson Davis honored him with the nickname, "Stonewall of the West."

Note de l'auteur: "These essays provide readers with exciting new information about and interpretations of one of the Confederacy's most able and controversial generals. Who was Pat Cleburne? How good a commander was he? Why didn't he rise higher in the army? These and other questions are answered in well-written and meticulously researched chapters. This book belongs on the shelves of everyone interested in the Western Theater and Civil War leadership." (Arthur W. Bergeron, Jr. Pamplin Park Civil War Site)
