Product Description

Caught between opposing ideas as two nations perished and another was born, Lee left a lasting legacy as one of the great moral and civic leaders of the postwar South. From the Civil War's waning days to Lee's disillusioned struggles thereafter, Dwyer masterfully captures the life of this soldier, man of peace, and Christian of enduring faith. 608 pages, softcover from Broadman & Holman.

Publisher's Description

Picking up where Stonewall left off, John Dwyer masterfully recreates the final years of the Civil War as well as the final years of Lee's life. This book will show that Robert E. Lee's greatest service to America was in those final years as he struggled with disappointment, disillusionment, broken dreams, and health problems. Assuming leadership of a struggling college in Lexington, Lee became the moral, civic, and racial leader of the post-war South.

    John Dwyer's "Robert E. Lee" is one of the best books I have ever read. It takes a close-up look at Lee himself, his family, and the circumstances and people of his time. I went through it in spurts, as it is over seven hundred pages long, but to me the length was worth it. (Prospective readers should understand, however, that the conservative Presbyterian author does include some blanked-out cuss words. I put Wite-out on these and kept the book.) There is so much historical fact in the book that, for the reader who is not a historian, the lines between fact and fiction will blur. We meet Robert E. Lee, the sincere Christian who does his best to encourage peace in the face of what he recognizes as evil Yankee oppression; Agnes, Lee's sorrowful daughter who has vowed after the death of her beau never to love again; Jeb Stuart, gallant Episcopal cavalryman who dies without the thing he wants most--to see his wife Flora one last time; Wayne Marley, Union scout and later a U.S. congressman, whose morality eventually caves under the temptations of Washington; Ethan McDowell, a Confederate Christian who keeps his promise to fight for Marse Robert "till the Yankees grind me to dust"; Elijah Sledge, the one-time slave of Ethan's cruel father and is now trying to make his way in the Reconstruction-era South; and Cole Culpeper, a bitter Rebel who vows to kill Sledge in revenge for the death of Culpeper's little cousin Daniel. Through faults and failures and brutality, eventually even the unregenerate Sledge, fallen Marley, and angry Culpeper find grace. Dwyer's book is for anyone who wonders about the real story of what occured during the latter part of the War Between the States and Reconstruction. He shows us the often-hyped problems of the unreconstructed as well as the hypocrisy, corruption, and hate of the Radicals and Northerners. The facts come out without favoritism in this literary masterpiece.
