The son of a Revolutionary War hero, Lee was a product of young Americas elite. And he embodied all the conflicts of his time.For Lee and others the Civil War was not about slavery but loyalty...to state or nation? When Lincoln offered him command of the U.S. Army, he chose instead the Confederacy, convinced that duty lay in serving his native Virginia.This one-volume abridgement by Richard Harwell of Freemans work contains all the power and drama of the original. The difference is that Lee is more accessible, the reader less cumbered with detail.Biography in the grand manner, military history par excellence. --Dumas Malone
