Civil War Confederate Army Officer. He served during the Civil War as Colonel and commander of the 43rd Battalion, Virginia Cavalry,and was the most successful and famous partisan leader during the war. The northern Virginia that was his area of operations became known as "Mosby's Confederacy", and his success against Union forces only ended with the collapse of the Confederacy and the end of the war. His later years were marked with controversy as he became a Republican, supported President Ulysses S. Grant, and was candid in correspondence and memoirs as to slavery being the main reason for Secession.
