Overview

Robert E. Lee never wrote about his military career or campaigns. His nephew, who maintained a close relationship—both on and off the battlefield—with the General, best fills that gap in history with this 1894 biography. Drawing from private papers, the author gives us the famous warrior’s ancestry, early career, role in the Civil War and after, and an assessment of his character—often letting the subject speak for himself.
