Robert E. Lee (A&E Civil War Journal)
This video is featured in Robert's
Books. An outstanding video about Robert E. Lee. In fact,
the entire A&E Civil War Journal is a great history of the war,
the battles, the people, and the times in general. It brings the
Civil War to life through old photos, actual words and quotes from
Robert E. Lee and others, and brilliant historians interpreting
what it all meant. If I were back in Jr. High School, I would definitely
invest in this series!
