1871 Life of Robert E Lee Cooke Civil War Military Confederate Army Illustrated

“It is well that war is so terrible, or we should grow too fond of it.” --Robert E. Lee

John Esten Cooke was an American novelist, writer and poet. During the American Civil War, Cooke served as a staff officer in the Confederate States Army cavalry.

After he started writing, he almost immediately became a successful novelist and prolific short story writer, eventually authoring 31 books and almost 200 published articles and poems Even before the end of the war, in 1863, Cooke wrote the first of several popular biographies, that of Stonewall Jackson. His later efforts at biography, such as this biography of Robert E. Lee as well as officers that he had personally known, were considered more accurate that his early Jackson biography.

This edition of “A Life of Gen. Robert E. Lee” is filled with illustrations, portraits, and maps and was published just after Lee’s death,
