First Amazon Review Of Lexington, Virginia & The Civil War

Here's a few excerpts . . . 

Author Richard G. Williams, Jr. provides a front row seat to anyone interested in learning about the most historic town in the Shenandoah Valley. 


Another interesting aspect of the book was Mr. Williams discussion of what motivated Robert E. Lee to cast his lot with the Confederacy and decline Lincoln's offer to command the Union forces. It was Lee's sense of duty and honor, his love for and loyalty to his family and native land of Virginia, where he had roots as far back as 1640, at a time when the United States itself was only 80 years old, that shaped his decision to fight for the Confederacy.

Richard G. Williams, Jr.'s book on Lexington was a real enjoyable read which I would take with me on any getaway to the historic Shenandoah Valley.
