"By using a variety of extensively researched materials compiled and presented in a fascinating way, Casstevens has done much to unravel some of the mystery of the man while telling the story of the Rebels he commanded." --Our State
"Nicely done...the book should be of interest to anyone interested in Clingman and his troops or North Carolina and the war." --The Civil War Courier
"One of North Carolina's more enigmatic but ignored commanders...dispels myths and provides a more thorough account of the leader and his unit than ever before." --Civil War Book Review
