Robert E. Lee Duty and Honor by Sarah Elder Hale


Robert E. Lee Duty and Honor by Sarah Elder Hale

At the start of the Civil War, Robert E. Lee was forced to choose between the country he had served for 30 years and his home state of Virginia. Though President Abraham Lincoln offered him command of the Union army, Lee knew that his loyalties lay in Virginia. This Southern gentleman would soon become not only the commander of the Confederate army but also one of the most widely known and highly respected heroes of the War Between the States. Robert E. Lee: Duty and Honor tells the story of a great leader, both in war and in peace. Meet the general who led the Confederates to victory at Chancellorsville, Fredericksburg, and Manassas. Explore the part Lee played as a young officer in the United States-Mexican War. Discover why Lee has become a symbol of his time and how he earned the respect of the South as well as the North.
