Elizabeth Brown Prior, author of "Reading the Man: A Portrait of Robert E. Lee Through His Private Letters."
Gerry's Monologue - "This is Gerry Prokopowicz, with Civil War Talk Radio,...
"...Robert E. Lee, the Marble Man, has been portrayed through the years as larger than life. Biographers, like Douglas Southall Freeman, have made Lee into a monument of all that was best in the Antebellum South. Critics, like Alan Nolan or Thomas Connelly, have chipped away in vain at the facade of perfection that Lee's admirers have constructed. Since Lee's own writing have never been collected or published, that facade has resisted every effort to look beneath, until now. Join us today as talk with Elizabeth Brown Prior about her Lincoln Prize winning book, "Reading the Man: A Portrait of Robert E. Lee Through His Private Letters," on Civil War Talk Radio."
