Join Author Donald Hopkins at the Manassas Museum for his Free Book Talk on Robert E. Lee in War and Peace. Even many who don’t consider themselves students of history would recognize a photograph of Robert E. Lee, with his iconic white hair, beard, and intensestare. Hopkins, however, is interested in the less familiar images of Lee. Many of the images in this book are being published for the first time.
