The Lees' first rebellion
Henry Lee III was a dashing cavalry commander, hero of the American Revolution, and a renowned statesman who helped ratify the Constitution. He is famous for eulogizing our first president as “first in war, first in peace and first in the hearts of his countrymen.” He was also the father of Confederate General Robert E. Lee.
This compelling biography reveals the senior Lee as one of the most fascinating figures in our nation's history. Filled with stories about Lee's interactions with the luminaries of the day—including George Washington, Alexander Hamilton, Thomas Jefferson, and Aaron Burr—it paints a rich portrait of a remarkable figure, and provides unique new insight into the upbringing and motivations of Lee’s infamous son.
