Course Description

Robert E. Lee has historically been remembered as the Confederate general who led an army into a war designed to maintain slavery in America. This course will focus on the entirety of General Lee's life, from his painful childhood in the Virginia aristocracy to his final days as president of Washington College. This course will use video documentaries, lectures, and a possible field trip to examine the personal nobility Lee brought to a mid-19th-century American culture, as a leading warrior in the US Army; as head of the US Military Academy at West Point, the leading citadel of military training; as the South's hero in the Civil War; and, finally, as one who personifies American reconciliation between the North and the South. The course will highlight Lee's leadership and his extended hand to all, both North and South, in bringing America back as a strong nation and society. | Lecture (plus questions); Viewing videos; Field trip(s)
