Jeb Stuart was born on the 9th of May, 1920 in Tennessee as a part of the Stuart family known for a long military tradition. Most famously is his ancestor General J.E.B. Stuart who was a General in them Confederate Army during the Civil War.
When the United States (U.S.) entered World War II Jeb joined the 3D Armored Division and became commander as a Lieutenant (Lt.) of a Stuart M3 Tank the surname coming form his ancestor J.E.B. Stuart.
As jeb went to war he discovered that General J.E.B. Stuart's ghost haunts the M3 Tank. He thus gives it the nickname "The Haunted Tank". Stuart's Ghost provids guardianship over Jeband his crew. However only Jeb has the ability to see or hear the General Stuart's ghost, and thus many of his own crew believe him to be crazy, though they still respect his combat abilities.
