“It is well that war is so terrible, or we should grow too fond of it.”

– Robert E. Lee

 

Following the American Civil War, several biographical sketches were furiously published on the lives and military involvement of notable war heroes, officers, and battles from the Civil War. No other confederate officer was more widely studied than Robert E. Lee.

 

James Dabney McCabe Jr, a Confederate supporter, was a prolific writer on a variety of subjects. His “Life and Campaigns of General Robert E. Lee” was first published during Lee’s life, just a year after his surrender. Per Nevins,

“More campaigns than life; the author attempted to present the events of the war in a fair and dispassionate manner.”

 

There are 15 illustrations including a portrait of Lee, as well as several folding maps of Virginia.
