Dr. Allen Guelzo, Senior Research Scholar in the Council of the Humanities at Princeton University and Director of the James Madison Program’s Initiative in Politics and Statesmanship, discusses his new book, Robert E. Lee: A Life. Robert E. Lee was a complex man, beginning with his father, Light Horse Harry Lee. Robert believed that he needed to carry the torch to redeem his family. A major driver in his life was to make right all the things his father did wrong. Dr. Guelzo shares details about Lee’s family, including his father and siblings. “Perfection” was Lee’s goal in life. Lee is one of the most famous military figures of the Civil War. Although Lee graduated second in his class at West Point, he spent the bulk of his life as an engineer and was commissioned into the Corps of Engineers upon graduation. He accepted a transfer into the cavalry right before the southern secession in 1860. Dr. Guelzo explains there is no other way to say it—Lee committed treason! This was not just one decision but a series of decisions made by Lee and Dr. Guelzo takes us step by step thru Lee’s process. Throughout the Civil War Lee was very critical of the Confederates and Lee, the ”reluctant Confederate,” surrendered on April 9, 1865, at Appomattox, to end the Civil War.
