The Mystery of Robert E. Lee

Most people know Robert E. Lee as the gallant, southern general of the War Between the States, but few people know him as Robert E. Lee, the man. The Mystery of Robert E. Lee is a thoroughly entertaining sixty-three minute video program featuring Professor Elliot Engel, believed by many to be one of the great storytellers of our time. Professor Engel begins with the tragic youth of Lee, and guides us step-by-step through the events which would eventually influence and mold this great man. We learn of his dutiful responsibilities to his invalid mother, his failure as director of West Point, his association with General Scott during the war with Mexico, and his rise to Confederate General of the Army of Northern Virginia. Professor Engel expertly reveals Lee as a son, a father, a husband, and as the gentle, unassuming, but brilliant, leader and general. Professor Elliot Engel brings Robert E. Lee to life in a way that will appeal to young and old alike. Using anecdote, analysis, and large doses of humor, he gives new insights in the background, life, and accomplishment of this great historical figure.
