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!

Who's Your Hero?

Robert E. Lee is my hero. He was an all around great person. Of course, he was a brilliant general and strategist during the Civil War. He was also a very honorable person, husband, father, soldier, and cadet. As a cadet at West Point, he never received a demerit, and he graduated at the top of his class." -- Stephen from Virginia.
