Robert E. Lee: A Life by Allen C. Guelzo
THERE IS A RED "CLOSEOUT/REMAINDER" MARK ON THE BOTTOM PAGE EDGE.
Robert E. Lee is one of the most confounding figures in American history. Lee was a traitor to the country he swore to serve as an Army officer, and yet he was admired even by his enemies for his composure and leadership. He considered slavery immoral, but benefited from inherited slaves and fought to defend the institution. And behind his genteel demeanor and perfectionism lurked the insecurities of a man haunted by the legacy of a father who stained the family name by declaring bankruptcy and who disappeared when Lee was just six years old. Despite having a long career as an Army engineer and marrying into one of the most prominent families in Washington, D.C., his desire for financial and personal independence would strain his relationships with the Army and his family throughout his life and finally lead him to the decision that would permanently mark his place in American history.
