Sintesi dell'editore

In preparing the Life of Lee for Children, for use in the public schools, I beg leave to place before teachers good reasons for employing it as a supplementary reader.

First, I urge the need of interesting our children in history at an early age. From observation I find that the minds of children who study history early expand more rapidly than those who are restricted to the limits of stories in readers. While teaching pupils to read, why not fix in their minds the names and deeds of our great men, thereby laying the foundation of historical knowledge and instilling true patriotism into their youthful souls?

Secondly, in looking over the lives of our American heroes we find not one which presents such a picture of moral grandeur as that of Lee. Place this picture before the little ones and you cannot fail to make them look upward to noble ideals. (Mary L. Williamson)

(P)2003 Blackstone Audiobooks

"This short hagiography for children is an excellent example of those late nineteenth-century works that give us Lee as 'the marble man': someone with the appearance of humanity, but not really human....Lloyd James does a fine job in this production. His voice is calm, and his delivery self-controlled, much like Lee himself."

a close look at this humble warrior

I have heard many things about this man over the years. This book helped me understand why he was so loved by his troops.
Being a military veteran myself I respect how led his men from the front.

Excellent short biography on a great man

If you haven’t ever read about Robert E. Lee’s life, this is a great place to start. It’s short. The reader did well and was easy to listen to without being obnoxious. Overall very happy with this book and all I didn’t know about this important man in US history.

Embarrassing Dunning School Revisionism

This hagiography of Lee is an excellent example of the revisionism of Post Bellum southern apologists that dominated the academy as recently as the 1970s. Lee is no hero, but I'm not of the opinion his statues should be destroyed or that he should be made into a monster.. He was properly removed from the Capitol...point being...if you want a sense of the utter nonsense taught to American children from 1890 to 1960...read this tripe. it has no other historical value than as a lens to explain the stupidity and evil that Dr. King had to fight through to finally kill the historical "settlement" that stole the heroic story of the North's Civil War and the end of slavery in America. There has been excellent historiographical change since my education in College...particularly in regard to US Grant...Lee's brilliant adversary. I recommend Bonekemper... as for Lee...he is no hero, not because he was more wicked than the society that created him...but simply because he was too weak a man to rise above the world that made him. Great Men shape their time for good. Lee reflected his time in its weakest moral confusion and depravity. If you read this book...let it be a reminder that wars are not won exclusively on the battlefield...but in the minds of the children who grew up in the story of those wars. Lee was the hero of the men who hurt our country and held it in the grip of lies for a 100 years. Learn.

Too much adulation for Lee

What a short but enough for kids. Too much man centered and doesn't go into why of things.
