Why in the 21st Century should we care about “the Old Rebel” Robert E. Lee, a Victorian who was old fashioned even during his own time, and who died nearly 150 years ago? Why a book about how his peers
saw him, when the world he lived in disappeared long ago, making his life and death seemingly meaningless to those of us living in the modern era? In The Old Rebel: Robert E. Lee As He Was Seen by His
Contemporaries, award-winning author and Southern historian Colonel Lochlainn Seabrook, provides the answers: in our ever growing impersonal cyber age where we continue to distance ourselves not only
from others, but from God and Nature as well, the Christ-like Southern gentleman Robert E. Lee is more relevant than ever before.
In his hard-working, conservative, dutiful, and honest ways, in his deeply spiritual, modest, loyal, gentle, loving, and forgiving nature, Lee serves as an ideal moral compass for today’s depersonalized atheistic
society, a true-life paragon that all of us - no matter what our age, occupation, race, religion, or political persuasion - can aspire to.
To aid us in better understanding the stunning power of Robert E. Lee’s life, Col. Seabrook has gathered together nearly 400 footnoted quotes by the General’s 19th-Century contemporaries, including both his
admirers and his former Northern foes. The book, a companion to Seabrook’s equally absorbing work The Quotable Robert E. Lee, is divided into convenient chapters, covering everything from Lee’s birth,
childhood, and family life, to his service in both the U.S. military and the C.S. military, as well as his time as president of Washington College (now Washington and Lee University).
We also learn about the General’s earliest known French and English ancestors, his royal bloodline through William the Conqueror, Stratford Hall (Lee’s birthplace) and Arlington House (the Lee-Custis family
estate), and the etymology of the Lee surname. Seabrook’s personal notes and his numerous Victorian illustrations lend historical context, helping make this Civil War Sesquicentennial Edition an indispensable
work for all those interested in Lincoln's War, authentic Confederate history, and Southern culture. Available in paperback and hardcover. All text copyright © Sea Raven Press)
