Turner Ashby

Turner Ashby was a Confederate cavalry general who served under Thomas J. "Stonewall" Jackson in the Shenandoah Valley Campaign of 1862 during the American Civil War (1861–1865). An expert horseman whose dead mounts were kept as romantic relics, Ashby was arguably the Confederacy's most renowned combat hero before his death in 1862.
