Robert E. Lee was a war hero, a General in Chief, a president of Washington College, and a husband. Robert was a great person, his teacher described him as "neat, never behind in his work, a most exemplary student in every respect." After his father died, he took care of his mother and siblings. Once his mother died he left home and entered the United States Military Academy. He became a soldier and later married Mary Randolph and had seven children. He was sent by the army to all kinds of places in the U.S. to fix and repair things. Then he became a scout in Mexico. After the war, he was called a "military genus." Lee was a great soldier, but he hated war. This is a very informational book about Robert E. Lee. I can imagine that boys would really like this book because of the illustrated war pictures. I went from knowing nothing about Robert E. Lee, to learning that he was one of the greatest war heroes ever. Very good picture book about Robert E. Lee.
