Ask the average American who their favorite Civil War general is and you will invariably get the name of the blue-coated Union military hero Ulysses S. Grant. Victorian Yankees loved him so much they put his
face on their fifty-dollar bill and made him president of the United States - twice. We in the South, however, prefer our Civil War generals in Confederate gray, and none wore it better, or more nobly and prouder,
than Robert E. Lee.
Whether you are new to the “Great Virginian” or a longtime fan, award-winning Southern historian Colonel Lochlainn Seabrook’s book, The Quotable Robert E. Lee: Selections From the Writings and Speeches of
the South’s Most Beloved Civil War General, will be a revelation. Writers, teachers, scholars, speakers, preachers, lecturers, and historians will find this compact book of literary gems of inestimable value, and
history lovers and Civil War buffs will enjoy meandering through both the many Victorian illustrations and the veritable garden of Leeisms. The latter include everything from his private letters and military
dispatches, to his personal views on education, child-rearing, Nature, religion, secession, slavery, abolition, and Lincoln’s War.
While we often learn about famous individuals through dry encyclopedic entries, overly detailed history books, and massively long biographies, in Seabrook’s The Quotable Robert E. Lee we get to know “Marse
Robert” - and even relive the Civil War - through his own words, notes, aphorisms, letters, speeches, and field reports. Discover the real Robert E. Lee in the role of son, brother, husband, father, friend, devout
Christian, Mexican-American War vet, Civil War general, and president of Washington College (now Washington and Lee University) in this information-packed read. Includes nearly 400 footnoted quotes, a time
line of Lee’s life and accomplishments, a Lee family tree, unusual Lee family facts, Lee’s plan for emancipating and enlisting slaves in the Confederate army, a bibliography, and dozens of rare photos and
The author’s copious and detailed notes provide excellent context to the wealth of Lee material. A companion to Seabrook’s equally important work, The Old Rebel: Robert E. Lee As He Was Seen By His
Contemporaries, The Quotable Robert E. Lee is the only book of its kind, and is already becoming a Southern classic, as well as a standard in the field of American history. Available in paperback and hardcover.

“If you want to really get to know this famous historical figure, what better
way than to read his own words? Col. Seabrook’s book includes hundreds
of excerpts of letters, conversations and speeches from this remarkable
man. Despite being known as a warrior in the bloodiest conflict this country
has ever seen, he was actually a simple, devout Christian who lived his life
with his eye firmly on the grace of God. This man was amazing. If it were
not for him and what he manifested to his soldiers, the so called ‘Civil War’
would have lasted much longer, and the country would have been further
torn apart. The USA owes a debt to Robert E. Lee for not advocating
guerrilla warfare in the face of the situation at Appomattox. This is a must-
read for all students of history.” - DOUG BOREN
