Robert E. Lee is well known as a Confederate general and as an educator later in life, but most people are exposed to
the same handful of images of one of America’s most famous sons. It has been almost seven decades since anyone has attempted a serious study of Lee in photographs, and with Don Hopkins’s painstakingly researched and lavishly illustrated Robert E. Lee in War and Peace, the wait is finally over. Born in the rural South, Donald A. Hopkins has maintained a fascination with Southern history since he was a child. In addition to published papers in the medical field, he has written several Civil War articles and The Little Jeff: A History of the Jeff Davis Legion, Cavalry, Army of Northern Virginia for which
he received the United Daughters of the Confederacy’s Jefferson Davis Historical Gold Medal.
