The Life of Col. John Singleton Mosby

James A. Ramage

Narrated by Gary Willprecht

Available from Audible

Book published by The University Press of Kentucky

Confederate John Singleton Mosby forged his reputation on the most exhilarating of military activities: the overnight raid. Mosby possessed a genius for guerrilla and psychological warfare, taking control of the dark to make himself the "Gray Ghost" of Union nightmares. Gray Ghost, the first full biography of Confederate raider John Mosby, reveals new information on every aspect of Mosby’s life, providing the first analysis of his impact on the Civil War from the Union viewpoint.

James A. Ramage is Regents Professor of History at Northern Kentucky University and the author of John Wesley Hunt: Pioneer Merchant, Manufacturer, and Financier and Rebel Raider: The Life of General John Hunt Morgan.


“Offers a lively, immensely detailed record of Mosby's wartime career and a vivid summary of his equally turbulent post-war life.”

“The first full biography of the renowned Confederate partisan ranger”

“The documented exploits of Mosby and his raiders read like the most exciting adventure fiction.”
