Biographies of Robert E. Lee

Here’s Emory Thomas talking about his two books on Robert E. Lee, the life of Lee, and what it was like to write a biography of Lee in the shadow of Douglas Southall Freeman.  This was a lecture Professor Thomas gave at the Library of a Virginia as part of the Museum of the Confederacy’s lecture series.
