Though more than a generation has now elapsed since General Eobert E. Lee passed from the scenes of his illustrious deeds, public interest in the great soldier and his career is still active, and turns with increasing curiosity to any attractive recital of the incidents in his eventful life many as are the biographies that have already been published of him. Nor is this perennial interest in the loved hero of a Lost Cause to be wondered at, when we recall not only the historical importance of the long struggle in which he so nobly fought, and against such heavy odds ;but the remarkable military ability and eminently high character of the man whose career is identified with the great conflict, and whose life-story is throughout so attractive and inspiring. The era is now passed when, in the North, Confederates and their sympathizers were hotly stigmatized as rebels, and when their attitude and their caiise were aspersed as hateful as well as treasonable.
