Robert E. Lee in Texas
by Carl Coke Rister  
 
Robert E. Lee in Texas introduces a little known phase of the great General’s career — his service in Texas during the four turbulent years just preceding the Civil War. In this account Carl Coke Rister takes us with Lee to his lonely posts on the border, and we share with him the hazardous and often fruitless chases after bands of American Indians and Mexicans. We see through the eyes of the “Academy man” the raw life on the frontier and hear through his own words his impressions of the country and people.
