Alfred Emory Lee, an aspiring attorney recently graduated from Ohio Wesleyan University, resolved to do his part to restore the Union. Lee enlisted in Co. I of the 82nd Ohio Volunteer Infantry in November 1861 and so begins this incredible journey through the Civil War. Lee was commissioned as an officer and wrote home frequently, leaving a fascinating record of the lengthy list of battles in which his regiment participated, including McDowell, Cross Keys, Cedar Mountain, Second Bull Run, Chancellorsville, Gettysburg, (where Lee was severely wounded and captured on the first day of the battle), Wauhatchie, Missionary Ridge, Resaca, New Hope Church, CulpÕs Farm, Peach Tree Creek, Atlanta, Savannah, Averysboro, and Bentonville. Alfred E. LeeÕs Civil War draws from LeeÕs copious wartime correspondence and his post war writings to present a detailed and insightful portrait of the war as fought both east and west.
