John Singleton Mosby (December 6, 1833 May 30, 1916), also known by his nickname, the "Gray Ghost", was a Confederate army cavalry battalion commander in the American Civil War. His command, the 43rd Battalion, Virginia Cavalry, known as Mosby's Rangers or Mosby's Raiders, was a partisan ranger unit noted for its lightning-quick raids and its ability to elude Union Army pursuers and disappear, blending in with local farmers and townsmen. The area of northern central Virginia in which Mosby operated with impunity was known during the war and ever since as Mosby's Confederacy. After the war, Mosby became a Republican and worked as an attorney, supporting his former enemy's commander, U.
He also served as the American consul to Hong Kong and in the U. A short time after the surrender of the Confederate armies, Major John Scott, who had been associated with me for some time before the close of the war, proposed with my approbation and consent, which was cheefully given, to write a memoir of my command. I placed at his disposal all of my dispatches, correspondance and other millitary memmoranda. He applied himself with great zeal and diligence to the task having all the time the cooperation of the officers and the men of the command. TIP: FOR ILLUSTRATIONS & ENGRAVINGS.
