In Defense of General Leeby Michael Dan Jones
General Robert E. Lee is one of the most admired men of history, not only by Southerners, but by some of the other great men of history. Reprinted here is an article by Lord General Garnet Joseph Wolseley, a great British general of the last half of the 19th Century. Wolseley personally met Lee on a visit to the Army of Northern Virginia in October, 1862. He was so impressed by Lee, he called the Confederate general the most perfect man he ever met. Wolseley's article defending Lee against critics is reprinted in this volume, along with excerpts from President Jefferson Davis' memorial address on Lee, and other essays by people who knew Lee personally. The book is illustrated by photographs of Lee and places and people of importance in his life.
