Robert E. Lee is one of the most famous and decorated American generals in history. The son of Revolutionary War hero Henry “Light Horse Harry” Lee III, General Lee was a native of Virginia and a top graduate at West Point. So distinguished was Lee, that President Abraham Lincoln offered him command of the entire Union army before the onset of the Civil War. Lee famously declined the offer, and instead served his home state of Virginia after it seceded. His closeness with his soldiers as well as his leadership came to personify the South. Here, in a collection of personal correspondence compiled by his son, Captain Robert E. Lee, the man behind the uniform is revealed.

About the Author

General Robert E. Lee (1807–1870) was a career military officer who is best known for having commanded the Confederate Army of Northern Virginia in the American Civil War. The son of Revolutionary War officer Henry “Light Horse Harry” Lee III and a top graduate of the United States Military Academy at West Point, Lee distinguished himself as an exceptional officer and combat engineer in the United States Army for thirty-two years. During this time, he served throughout the United States, distinguished himself during the Mexican-American War, and served as superintendent of the United States Military Academy. When Virginia declared its secession from the Union in April 1861, Lee chose to follow his home state, despite the fact that President Abraham Lincoln had offered Lee command of the Union Army. Although he was able to secure victories against the much larger Union Army, Lee ultimately surrendered to Ulysses S. Grant at the Appomattox Court House on April 9, 1865. After the war, Lee served as president of what is now known as Washington and Lee University.
