Written by J. William Jones
This book was Dr. Jones' final publication and according to the great historian Douglas Southall Freeman, he "rounded out. . .a service to Confederate historiography that no other man rivaled." All future biographies of General Lee have drawn heavily on this and other works of the prolific Baptist pastor.
This easy-to-read volume is a basic biography of the great Christian general penned by one who knew him as a close friend and confidant and served four years under Lee's command as a private and chaplain.
