Abstract:

"Pryor's biography helps part with a lot of stupid out there about Lee? chiefly, that he was, somehow, 'anti-slavery.'"? Ta-Nehisi Coates, theatlantic.com An "unorthodox, critical, and engaging biography" (Boston Globe)? Winner of The Lincoln Prize Robert E. Lee is remembered by history as a tragic figure, stoic and brave but distant and enigmatic. Using dozens of previously unpublished letters as departure points, Pryor produces a stunning personal account of Lee's military ability, shedding new light on every aspect of the complex and contradictory general's life story. Explained for the first time in the context of the young United States's tumultuous societal developments, Lee's actions reveal a man forced to play a leading role in the formation of the nation at the cost of his private happiness
