"The Scouts of Stonewall," while an independent story, is in effect a continuation of the series which began with "The Guns of Bull Run" and which was carried on in "The Guns of Shiloh." The present romance reverts to the Southern side, and is concerned with the fortunes of Harry Kenton and his friends.

They were now in powerful force at the head of the great Virginia valleys, and they would sweep down them with such impact that nothing could stand before them.
