Jonathan Horn - The Man Who Would Not Be Washington: Robert E. Lee's Civil War and His Decision That Changed American History

Sunday, January 11, 2015 - 5:00pm to 6:00pm

Horn, a former presidential speechwriter and frequent political commentator, reveals Robert E. Lee as a man for whom the divisions of the Civil War ran especially deep. His father had eulogized George Washington at the founder’s funeral, and his wife was Washington’s adopted daughter. Leading the Confederate forces, Lee rejected portions of his national and familial legacy while keeping the battlefield virtuosity—and the slavery. (Scribner)
