Page 10 --- The Gienville Democrat/Pathfinder -- Thursday, May 29, 2003 New Book on Quarrier Press is pleased to an- nounce the release of it's latest book. On Our Own Soil This fresh and capitvating biography tells the tale of acontroversial Civil War hero, briga- dier general William Lowther Jack- son of Parkersburg. Jackson defended the Contbderacy's western front with Wm. Jackson only a few companies of inexperi- enced volunteers. He later served on his cousin Stonewall's staff and in 1863 organized twocalvary regiments for Virginia service. During the last year of the war, Jackson's troops bravely defended the Shenandoah Valley. The most fascinating aspect of Jackson and his regiments, how- ever, has been the almost complete erasure of them from most historical annals. On Our" Own Soil hopes to change that by taking an honest and unbiased look at the life, career, and character of William Jackson. This book answers the question: 'Why did West Virginia reject Will-" Jam Lowthcr Jackson'?' Hopefully. this book will establish Jackson's rightful place in our history as a loyal public servant and judicious leader. on Our Own Soil, is available from bc~kstores or directly from Pictorial Histories, 1416 Quarrier Street, Charleston, WV 25301.
