Though at times he was known to have a �fierce and violent temper,� Lee nonetheless had a heart that editor Thomas Forehand contests was �as soft as velvet.� Through letters, diary excerpts, and touching stories, Forehand demonstrates that in his personal life Lee was indeed a peacemaker, full of a surprisingly sensitive and gentle nature that his family and others recorded. Chapters on chivalry, family, peace, slaves, and enemies show Lee�s conscientious and compassionate side in various situations.

Dal retro di copertina:

"Lee is an admirable figure from our past. He was a complex man whose many facets continue to attract study and emulation. This book reveals more of a great American."
--Michael R. Bradley, Professor Emeritus, U.S. history, Motlow State College (Lynchburg, TN) and author of Nathan Bedford Forrest's Escort and Staff

Gen. Robert E. Lee's impressive acts of chivalry, compassion shown towards his enemies, fondness for animals, and tenderness towards family and friends are lesser-known than other facets of his otherwise well-recorded persona. This book offers surprising glimpses of Lee's more merciful side and gives evidence that this fierce leader is more than the "marble man" he was known as.

Serving as a perfect companion to Forehand's first compilation, Robert E. Lee's Lighter Side, this collection includes letters, diary excerpts, and touching stories from Lee himself, as well as his wife, children, students, and strangers who recorded his acts of kindness. Chapters include examples of Lee's expressions of sensitivity towards family, fellow soldiers, slaves, and others, documenting his full humanity.

Thomas Forehand, Jr., grew up in Burns, Tennessee. Since the summer of 2001, he has portrayed Robert E. Lee at Sons of Confederate Veterans camps, historical societies, United Daughters of the Confederacy chapters, and other historically interested groups. In 2004, he was granted the Robert E. Lee Award from the Tennessee Division of the Sons of Confederate Veterans for his authentic portrayals.
