ROBERT E. LEE COLLECTION
The following are transcriptions of letters to and from Robert E. Lee in the Special Collections of the James Leyburn Library of Washington and Lee University. In some cases letter summaries are used in place of transcriptions. These transcriptions have been created by Robert C Peniston, retired Captain in the United States Navy and former Director of the Lee Chapel at W&L. Captain Peniston has been working on transcriptions from our Lee collection as a volunteer since September 1998 and his work continues to this day.
Most of these letters are from the Robert E. Lee (064) collection. Some of the letters are from the Lee-Jackson (170) collection.
