Advice, admonitions, and anecdotes on Christian duty and wisdom from the life of General Lee. All his life, Robert E. Lee 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. In this age where self-interest often rules, these short statements, often jotted by General Lee at odd moments, provide young readers with some of the qualities that Lee practiced himself: humility, erudition, faith, duty, wisdom, and respect for all of Gods creations. Each section is preceded by a brief anecdote from his life, and each of the quotes is described with the time and circumstance.

From the Back Cover:


"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 mana 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 Lee's wisdom and grace."

--J. Steven Wilkins, author of Call of Duty: The Sterling Nobility of Robert E. Lee

"This riveting collection of Lee's own stirring words and personal thoughts gives amplified insight into the life of a rare and much needed role model."

--James McDonald, publisher, Homeschooling Today

"This reviewer applauds his efforts to bring to the vanguard a true, timeless role model."

--Blue &Gray

Gen. Robert E. Lee, 1807-70, was renowned for his brilliant leadership during the Civil War; however, his genius extended far beyond the battlefield. 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.

Richard G. Williams, Jr., is a seventh-generation Virginian who lives in the Shenandoah Valley with his family. In addition to his writing career, he has served in the government of the Commonwealth of Virginia and actively contributes to his community and the preservation of Civil War history.
