General Robert E. Lee, 1807-70, was renowned for his brilliant leadership; however; his genius extended far beyond the battlefield. This volume contains this advice and observations, drawn from the great man’s own writings, on topics such as educations, duty, humility, and Christian faith—making this a valuable guide for today’s youth.

Richard G Williams, Jr., is a seventh-generation Virginian who lives in the Shenandoah Valley. In a addition to his writing career, he served in the government of the Commonwealth of Virginia and contributes to the preservation of Civil War history.

Lee’s exemplary life still serves as an example to teach America’s sons “to discharge their duty in life.” Lee’s life was the epitome of self-denial. Every young person should read this book!
