In the Footsteps of Robert E. Lee

Overview

If you're a fan of Robert E. Lee, you may have visited Chancellorsville or Gettysburg or Appomattox or Lexington, where the general is buried.

Overview

If you're a fan of Robert E. Lee, you may have visited Chancellorsville or Gettysburg or Appomattox or Lexington, where the general is buried.

But chances are you don't know how to get to Stratford Hall, where Lee was born. And you've probably never been to the spot where Lee and Longstreet put themselves in a position to be captured by the Federals, or the home where Lee was narrowly missed by a cannonball while drinking a glass of buttermilk, or the fort where he rescued a beloved dog, or the place where he adopted his wartime pet, a chicken.

This is your guide to both the major Lee sites in Virginia and West Virginia and lesser-known sites in distant states-from Texas, where he was sent to chase Indians; to New York, where he rode his horse down Broadway; to Florida, where he picked oranges as an elderly tourist. Taken together, they will let you-as far as is possible-stand where General Lee stood and see what he saw.

Author Biography: Clint Johnson is the author of Touring Virginia's and West Virginia's Civil War Sites, Touring the Carolinas' Civil War Sites, and Civil War Blunders. He lives in Winston-Salem, North Carolina.
