This book was a very great book. I loved how it informed me so much about the civil war. One of the best parts of this book is it didn't just tell me Roberts success on the battlefield but also the success off of the field. Robert E. Lee was a very religious man. Even though he may have been made fun of for taking defense but Robert E. Lees earthworks and defenses were one of the best that the U.S. had seen in all time.
