With Lee in Virginia Lib/E: A Story of the American Civil War (Henty Historical Novel Collection) (Compact Disc)
Bring history back to life through Jim Hodges' historically accurate, exciting and edifying audio recordings.
Few wars have been fought by each side with greater intensity of conviction in the rightness of its cause or with more abundant personal heroism than the War Between the States. The story begins with a great responsibility falling on Vincent Wingfield, the teenage son of a widowed Virginia plantation owner. Vincent must decide what course of action he should take when a problem arises on the plantation.
Unlike many stories of this American war, Mr. Henty brings to it a European viewpoint that differs drastically from the current views on the nature and reasons for this struggle. Henty's With Lee in Virginia will introduce the reader to many of the famous battles of the 1860's along with learning much about the character of Robert E. Lee and his lieutenants.
The Henty Historical Novel Collection, written by George Henty in the 1800s, covers many time periods in history throughout the world.
