Inhaltsangabe: In G. A. Henty's heroic clash of opposing conviction, Vincent Wingfield, a young spirited teenager and heir to a southern slave plantation, bravely proves his sympathy for brutally treated slaves and becomes a staunch supporter of slaves' rights. But, with the onset of the Civil War, Wingfield's fidelity to the state of Virginia leads him to serve under Robert E. Lee's cavalry and fight for the Confederacy. Through his courage and readiness, he survives hairbreadth escapes, attempts on his life, and two imprisonments. Henty provides an intriguing insight into the war's famous battles, the characters of Robert E. Lee and his lieutenants, and the vast complexities of the saddest conflict in the history of the United States.
From the Publisher: 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 of school in England, Vincent finds conditions in the South and the country unsettled. Before long, war breaks out and Vincent goes to fight for the South. Henty's gripping story weaves Vincent's adventures with the real life events and people of the Civil War, teaching history as it entertains and celebrating the virtues of family loyalty, honor, bravery, and determination in the face of adversity.
