Summary, etc.:
Who was "Light-Horse Harry" Lee? Major-General Henry Lee III was a Virginia cavalryman, a subordinate of George Washington, and father to Robert E. Lee. He was also a con man, a drifter; a dabbler in squalid land deals. Cole has scoured contemporary documents concerning Lee's life, political philosophy, and character, to give us an intimate picture of this soldier and statesman of the founding generation-- a greatly flawed but hugely talented man whose influence has reverberated to the present day. -- adapted from jacket
