Item Description...
"I can think of no better guide for young men embarking on the adventure of life than the maxims of Robert E. Lee." --H. W. Crocker III, author of Robert E. Lee on Leadership " Must reading for all fathers and sons. . . . The example of Robert E. Lee illustrates in stark colors what it means to be a man--a model essential for all of us who are products of this distinctly unmanly age. Rick Williams has placed us all in his debt with this wonderful anthology of Leeis wisdom and grace." -- J. Steven Wilkins, author of Call of Duty: The Sterling Nobility of Robert E. Lee Gen. Robert E. Lee, 1807-1870, was renowned for his brilliant leadership during the Civil War; however, his genius extended far beyond the battlefield. All his life, he relied upon his faith for strength and guidance not only in troubled times, but also as the foundation upon which he based all of his dealings with others. This volume contains his advice and observations, drawn from the great man's own writings, on crucial topics such as education, duty, humility, and Christian faith--making this a valuable guide for today's youth. Each section is preceded by a brief anecdote from his life, and each of the quotes is described with the time and circumstance. About the Editor Richard G. Williams is a seventh-generation Virginian who lives with his family in Stuart's Draft in the Shenandoah Valley. In addition to his writing career, he is an insurance industry professional who has also served in the government of the Commonwealth of Virginia.

Fatherly Wisdom  Oct 29, 2008
There should be a class taught in school and this is the text. Too many children do not have a positive role model to teach these maxims.

I personally like "The education of a man or woman is never completed until they die." ~ Lee writing to son Custis, 5 December 1860.

My father taught me "Life is and eduacation" and I have been living that ever since.

The Maxims of Rober E. Lee For YOung Gentlemen  Mar 11, 2008
I am a KA and am proud of this book. It not only gives a rounded picture of the General but also lets us in on his thought processes for one of the toughest times of our nations history.
Lee: A Role Model & Example for everyone  Nov 16, 2007
This is a great book for youth of today! btw, Lee did own slaves, but he freed them during the Civil War. These slaves were given him by his father-in-law. I love to copy these maxims & post them in my room to remember. Lee is a hero of the South, but the North also respected him. Grant, US Gen., was a friend of Lee. And after the war, he asked US Congress/President to protect Lee from the Northerners who wanted him imprisoned or worse. This book should be in everyone's library!
A great man.  May 11, 2006
Robert E. Lee was surely a giant among men. Even in defeat, he stood tall. Sister Sledge repeats an old libel by claiming that he treated the slaves under his care badly. There is no evidence that he even had them flogged. In fact, in 1856 he wrote: "There are few, I believe, in this enlightened age, who will not acknowledge that slavery as an institution is a moral and political evil." This is not the kind of man who wished to perpetuate slavery.
Robert E. Lee is no role model  Sep 18, 2005
One of the enduring myths that members of the neo-Confederate movement rely on is that Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee was a moral and admirable person. This book is part of that hagiography. However, in reality, Lee was a typical slave owning Southern aristocrat of his time. He owned at least a half-dozen slaves in his own name, a woman and her children. (Many slave owners fathered children with slave women, though it is not known if Lee was the father of Nancy's children.) In addition, Lee controlled sixty-three of his father-in-law's slaves as the executor of his will for five years. The slaves had been promised their freedom on the death of their master. During that time Lee had control of the estate he hired them out and used the profits to pay his debts. When a few of the slaves ran away, he had them recaptured. As punishment, Lee had the escapees whipped and salt rubbed into their wounds. In addition to hands-on support of slavery, Lee drafted the part of the Confederate Constitution that guarantees slavery into perpetuity.

Mainstream historians have rejected the myth of Lee the Christian gentleman and role model, opting for realism in portrayals of him. However, some members of the neo-Confederate movement, including the authors of this book, continue to promote claims about the general that are based more in fantasy than reality. It seems apparent that only people who are willing to ignore Lee's support of and participation in America's greatest wrong -- chattel slavery -- can believe that he was a person worthy of admiration.
