Traitor. Divider. Defender of slavery. This damning portrayal of Robert E. Lee has persisted for more than a hundred 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, God-fearing Christian.

Weaving forgotten facts and revelations (Lee considered slavery a moral outrage) with striking personal details (for years he carried his weakened mother to and from her carriage), biographer John Perry crafts a compelling treatment of the virtuous warrior who endured withering opposition and sacrificed all to stand for Constitutional freedoms.

    " More about Lee the man than the General. Family man, God fearing Christian, believed slavery to be a moral outrage. A great general and leader but a better man. "
