Overview

The name of Lee is beloved and respected throughout the world. Men of all par-ties and opinions unite in this sentiment, not only those who thought and fought with him, but those most violently opposed to his political views and career. It is natural that his own people should love and honor him as their great leader and defender in a struggle of intense bitterness--that his old enemies should share this profound regard and admiration is due solely to the character of the individual. His military genius will always be conceded, and his figure remain a conspicuous landmark in history; but this does not account for the fact that his very enemies love the man. One can only strive to be as well thought of and admired, as is Robert E. Lee. Few men are.

This book traces Lee from his early life, through the Civil War until his death.
