In his latest book, The Lost Indictment of Robert E. Lee, historian John Reeves tells the story of the forgotten legal and moral case that was made against the Confederate general after the Civil War. The actual indictment, which claimed Lee was guilty of treason and war crimes, went missing for 72 years, and over the last 150 years, there has been an incredible turnaround in attitudes toward the defeated general who has been transformed into an American hero. A book signing follows the program.
