Description
 
Readers are rediscovering G.A. Henty, the prolific 19th century author of historical adventures, whom George Grant calls "a Victorian literary phenomenon."  With Lee in Virginia introduces us to young Vincent Wingfield.  Not yet 16, and back in Virginia after four years in England, Vincent finds conditions in the South and the country unsettled.  Before long, war breaks out between the states and Vincent's adventures with the real life events and people of the war, teaching history as it entertains.  Admiring of the South, but by no means downplaying the evils slavery wrought, Henty makes a valuable contribution to the field of childern a new perspective on the War Between the States.
