23 editions published between 1960 and 2011 in English and held by 1,414 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

By May 1864, General Robert E. Lee had been transformed from a young soldier into a gray-haired patriarch of the Confederate cause. As Lee struggled to keep his ragged soldiers alive, he faced pressure from two fronts. Grant's Union Army not only had superior numbers, but a steadfast infra-structure or railroads and industrialized supply routes. Lee's Last Campaign is a triumph of historic research and elegant writing. In this essential analysis of General Lee's military strategy, Dowdey follows the triumphs and tragedies of the Army of Northern Virginia as it breathed its last gasps at the en

The golden age : a climate for greatness, Virginia 1732-1775 by Clifford Dowdey( Book )

5 editions published between 1936 and 1970 in English and held by 717 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The years 1732-1775 saw the culmination of Virginia's 'golden age.' It was a time when the Virginian aristocracy, now in the fullness of its power, gave birth to a generation of democrats and revolutionaries -- who in turn played a major part in establishing the first principles of the American republic. Vast changes were taking place in the colonies, and nowhere was this more evident than in the explosive atmosphere of Virginian politics. Greater and greater rifts were appearing between the thinkings of Crown and colony, and everywhere new, urgent voices were being heard, demanding equal rights and denouncing the unjust taxes imposed upon them by Parliamentary politics. The author focuses on Williamsburg in the mid-1700s and the extraordinary society that was able to generate such remarkable leaders as Patrick Henry, Thomas Jefferson, and George Washington, as well as sustain the great dynasties themselves -- the Byrds, Randolphs, Carters, and Lees -- in the years of spiraling tensions between Britain and France, between colonists and Indians, between the colonies and the Crown, and even among the colonists themselves

The wartime papers of Robert E. Lee by Robert E Lee( Book )

13 editions published between 1961 and 1993 in English and held by 213 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This monumental contribution to the literature of the Civil War brings together Leeʼs official correspondence -- letters, orders, dispatches, battle reports -- with his touching letters to his family, thus providing a previously unavailable view of Leeʼs life during the war. From the more than 6,000 items, the editors have chosen to reprint many letters in full for the first time, so that Lee is seen complete, self-revealed, in all his dignity and purpose. Short narratives connect each section -- on the mobilization of Virginia, Chancellorsville and Gettysburg, and the siege of Petersburg and Appomattox. Sponsored by the Virginia Civil War Commission to commemorate the Civil War Centennial, this expert work of scholarship dramatizes Leeʼs life as only his own correspondence could. As Lee himself said: ʺLetters are good representatives of our minds. They certainly present a good criterion for judging of the character of the individual.ʺ -- from Amazon.com
