This collection of writings by and about General Robert E. Lee represents an infinitesimally
small percentage of the literature on the Southland's greatest hero. Reverent Southrons and even
admiring Yankees have penned a stunning number of quasi-hagiographical biographies of the
man. This tiny selection of documents attempts to capture the depth of faith, the height of virtue,
and the breadth of achievement that made Lee the patron saint of a region and the central figure
in the carving at Stone Mountain.
