    Great Christmas gift for Dad

    My 80 year old Dad went to Gettysburg this year. He wanted to learn more about Robert E. Lee. This book is wonderful. It has all the pictures he loves and the type is large enough for him to read comfortably. It is very well written and easy to follow. I know he will love it. The other reviews helped me to decide to purchase this book. Thanks so much.
