A  book by John Reeves about the legal and moral case against Robert E. Lee after the Civil War.


  On June 7, 1865, just two months after his surrender at Appomattox, Robert E. Lee was indicted for treason by a Virginia grand jury and faced death by hanging if convicted. The Lost Indictment of Robert E. Lee tells the little-known story of the government’s failure to punish the South’s beloved military hero, a result that had wide-ranging ramifications for the future. This book will be published by Rowman & Littlefield in May 2018.
