The Gray Ghost

John Mosby was a slender man. Arming himself with up to eight revolvers, he rode out at night in a plumed hat and cape to gather his guerrilla band. The men would attack Union troops, supply depots, and camps. In the South, he was a hero — always beating an opponent, always escaping capture. To Union troops, he was the "Gray Ghost," a danger of the night. Years later, Mosby became a folk hero to veterans on both sides of the conflict.
