Abstract:

In this intimate portrait of a privileged young Yankee who became a battle-hardened soldier and revered officer, Carol Bundy draws on a wealth of family papers and unexamined public archives to display the lasting influence Lowell had on his and subsequent generations. With his almost unerring ability to understand the implications of a situation and to act accordingly, Lowell came to symbolize the perfection of a gentleman officer and, with his death, the lost promise of New England."
