Traitor. Divider. Defender of slavery. This damningportrayal of Robert E. Lee has persisted through 150 years of history books.And yet it has no basis in fact.
In the spirit of bold restoration, Lee: A Life of Virtue reveals the true Lee—passionate patriot,caring son, devoted husband, doting father, don’t-tread-on-me Virginian,Godfearing Christian.
Weaving forgotten facts and revelations (Lee considered slaverya moral outrage) with striking personal details (for years he carried hisweakened mother to and from her carriage), biographer John Perry crafts acompelling treatment of the virtuous warrior who endured withering oppositionand sacrificed all to stand for Constitutional freedoms.
