The Life of General Robert E. Lee For Children, In Easy Words (Paperback)
First, I urge the need of interesting our children in history at an early age. From observation I find the minds of children who study history early expand more rapidly than those who are restricted to the limits of stories in readers. While teaching pupils to read, why not fix in their minds the names and deeds of our great men, thereby laying the foundation of historical knowledge and instilling true patriotism into their youthful souls?
Secondly, in looking over the lives of our American heroes we find not one which presents such a picture of moral grandeur as that of Lee. Place this picture before the little ones and you cannot fail to make them look upward to noble ideals.
You will find no one in history who equals Lee. Not just his military career, but his integrity and the way he lived his life. He was a devout Christian in all aspects of his life. We can find example after example of this. No one in history can even come close.
Please share this book with your children, grandchildren, nieces and nephews, grand nieces and nephews, cousins and other young people you may know. For if we don't share our history, it will die with us.
