From the time Robert E. Lee took command of the Army of Northern Virginia on June 1, 1862, until the battle of Gettysburg thirteen months later, the Confederate army compiled a record of military achievement almost unparalleled in our nation's history. How it happened—the relative contributions of Lee, his top command, opposing Union generals, and of course the southern army itself—is the subject of Civil War historian Jeffry Wert's fascinating new history, A Glorious Army: Robert E. Lee's Triumph, 1862–1863. Mr. Wert, a former high school history teacher, is the author of eight previous books on Civil War topics. (vahistoricalsociety)
