Description
"As this lavishly illustrated volume reflects, Robert E. Lee and Ulysses S. Grant became such icons of the Civil War that an unbiased estimation of each general is not easy to reach. Their reputations fluctuated after the passing of the war generation that exalted them. A companion to an exhibition mounted by the New York Historical Society and the Virginia Historical Society over 200708, this work is replete with images of Lee and Grant, reproductions of their letters, and popular prints of their battles, and offers a biographical narrative of each man that extensively excerpts his own words. [William] Rasmussen and [Robert] Tilton are keen to lift regional bias from views about Lee and Grant, in respect to both their military ability and the justice of their causes. Accordingly, the authors carefully balance Lee's personal repugnance for slavery against his direct entanglement with it, while their assessment of Grant aligns with a contemporary ascent in scholarly critique of the Union commander."Booklist
