520    This monumental contribution to the literature of the 
       Civil War brings together Lee's official correspondence --
       letters, orders, dispatches, battle reports -- with his 
       touching letters to his family, thus providing a 
       previously unavailable view of Lee's life during the war. 
       From the more than 6,000 items, the editors have chosen to
       reprint many letters in full for the first time, so that 
       Lee is seen complete, self-revealed, in all his dignity 
       and purpose. Short narratives connect each section -- on 
       the mobilization of Virginia, Chancellorsville and 
       Gettysburg, and the siege of Petersburg and Appomattox. 
       Sponsored by the Virginia Civil War Commission to 
       commemorate the Civil War Centennial, this expert work of 
       scholarship dramatizes Lee's life as only his own 
       correspondence could. As Lee himself said: Letters are 
       good representatives of our minds. They certainly present 
       a good criterion for judging of the character of the 
       individual. -- from Amazon.com.
