ROBERT E. LEE AND ME A Southerner's Reckoning with the Myth of the Lost Cause

by | Read by Ty Seidule

History • 10.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2021

Ty Seidule is a West Point history professor, not an actor or even a professional narrator, but his outrage makes up for this lack of virtuosity. As a boy in Virginia, Seidule put all of mankind on a scale of one to ten, rating Lee an eleven--with Jesus coming in at five. But the study of history flipped the boy in love with the Lost Cause into one of its fiercest critics. He concluded that Lee committed treason. Slavery was a business, he learned, as cruel as it was practical. Lee didn't just own slaves, he had them whipped and then had salt water poured into their wounds. In a calm, teacherly voice Seidule lists the horrors. B.H.C. © AudioFile 2021, Portland, Maine [Published: APRIL 2021]
