1 Review
The author of more than 140 books — earning him the title "Prince of Storytellers" — George Alfred Henty wrote carefully researched, immensely popular children's books about fictional youngsters who lived in critical periods of history. In this volume, he focuses on the Civil War, as seen through the eyes of a spirited teenager from the South, who staunchly supports the rights of slaves but joins Lee's cavalry and fights for the Confederacy.

My second read from G.A. Henty. A good, wholesome story that the entire family can enjoy. The action and battles in all likely reel in the attention of adventurous boys.
"With Lee in Virginia" is
the story of a young man who faces many decisions over the course of the Civil War. He must choose what he believes in, even when it sways from his family, and must fight honorably. I certainly enjoyed the book myself!
