Abstract:

Whether opposing Nathaniel Bacon and his rebels in 1676, or condemning English colonial policy in 1776, or turning back the Union Army at the Seven Days' Battles of 1862, the descendants of Richard and Anne Lee have occupied a preeminent place in American history. They were among the first families of Virginia. Two were signers of the Declaration of Independence and several others distinguished them- selves during the Revolutionary War. And one, Robert E. Lee, remains widely admired for his loft character and military success.

"In 'The Lees of Virginia,' Paul Nagel chronicles seven generations of Lees, from the family founder Richard to General Robert E. Lee, covering over two hundred years of American history"--Front flyleaf of paper cover (attached to front lining papers of book).
