Book Talk with Charles Knight— From Arlington to Appomattox: Robert E. Lee’s Civil War, Day by Day, 1861-1865
July 29, 2021 @ 6:30 pm – 7:30 pm
Lost in all of the military histories of the war, and even in most of the Lee biographies, is what the general was doing when he was out of history’s “public” eye. Where was Lee and what was he doing when the spotlight of history failed to illuminate him? Correspondence and papers from Lee’s family, his staff, his lieutenants, and the men of his army revel new things about Lee for the first time.
