As an avid reader of Civil War history I found this book to be extremely interesting in that it details Lee After the war's end. While he did not live a long life after 1865 he made incredible contributions to "the South" in providing stability where others might have maintained the fight.
His leadership at Washington College (Washington & Lee) was amazing as was how he created and led a piece of post-war higher education in the South.

My curiousity in learning more about the character of the man I had only ever known of as a great confederate general is solved. I am literally in awe of the man's integrity and character in accepting Civil War defeat and then striving to do what he can to help heal a nation and bring order to where there was strife. I enjoyed the book for telling about Lee's life following his surrender at Appomatex until his death five years later in Lexington, VA.
