Lee we know was primarly the result of a well managed post war PR campaign. I think Connelly took his argument too far, however, its worth a read. Makes you wonder if there ever can be "truth" in history! Cheers!


There will always be those who see their mission as destroying the reputation of those they disagree with. This has become much more prevelant in the past few decades MHO.

Truth in history... well, there will always be bias, there will always be hero worship masquerading as biography, and there will always be those with an ax to grind
