Recollections and Letters shows all the varying facets of Lee’s character.
His letters reveal his personal warmth, bravery and concern for the South during and after the war. No other collection of source materials gives such a whole and rewarding picture of one of the South’s greatest sons and heroes.
Robert Edward “Rob” Lee Jr. (October 27, 1843 October 19, 1914) was the sixth of seven children of Confederate General Robert E. Lee and Mary Anna Randolph Custis. He became a soldier during the American Civil War, and later was a planter, businessman, and author. Captain Lee’s Recollections have a peculiar and personal value which can hardly be replaced or superseded by any other book, and those who have been led by the historical study to have a personal affection for the great soldier will find in these pages intimate access to his heart which they can obtain in no other way. Also in this book are an Appendix of unpublished letters and an index.
