Thunder and Fury: Whitson's Raiders spans the early life of Jesse Whitson on through the Civil War, a South Carolinian who felt reluctant to fight for Southern independence. When Southerners turned to seceding and forming the Confederate States of America, he tried to reason with people so they’d relent. He did not want to see the nation divided, and yet a meeting with a prominent figure of the time inspired him to come to terms with an inner struggle for leading a partisan command. Riding a spirited, long-legged horse with a chestnut coat named Destin, he and his men primarily patrolled east of the Blue Ridge Mountains in Virginia, often moving into Maryland and Pennsylvania to rage war. What made him a hardened Confederate commander was how the Yankees punished Virginians for supporting their cause, burning homes, barns, and imprisoning the people. Finding love during the high tide of this conflict, he tried to be an honorable leader and avoid retaliating for the scorched earth policies of General Sherman and others. When delving into his life, you’ll understand what made this man tick and gain an understanding of why he thought differently than most of those who lived about him.
