One thought on “Misreading the Man: Robert E. Lee and Elizabeth Brown Pryor

  1. Thank you, sir. I have read bits and parts of the book and find it a clearly an effort to denigrate Lee by ascribing her own biases and prejudices to portions of Lee’s writings. I find it shameful that it is so warmly received by academics. But such seems to be the current mode of pop history.
