Product description

Review

“Light-Horse Harry blazes across the pages of Ryan Cole’s narrative like a meteor—and his final crash is as destructive. Cole tells his story with care, sympathy, and where necessary, sternness. This book is a great, and sometimes harrowing read.”

  (Richard Brookhiser senior editor at National Review and author of Founding Father: Rediscovering George Washington)

“Lee was a bold and often reckless character whose tragic life ended up tracing the distance between valiant Revolutionary service under George Washington and the depths of bankruptcy, debtor’s prison, and a painful end. Cole captures it all in admirably lapidary prose, in the process bringing to life the vanished world of the early American republic, a world of both opportunity and peril.”

  (Wilfred M. McClay G.T. and Libby Blankenship Chair in the History of Liberty, University of Oklahoma)

 

“This page-turning biography brings Robert E. Lee’s father vividly back to life.”

  (Harold Holzer 2008 winner of the National Humanities Medal and 2015 winner of the Lincoln Prize)

 “Ryan Cole’s new biography of Henry Lee—the daredevil cavalry master of the American Revolution and the father of Robert E. Lee—provides us with a portrait nearly as headlong and fast-paced as ‘Light-Horse Harry’ himself.”

  (Allen Guelzo Professor of the Civil War Era at Gettysburg College and author of Gettysburg: The Last Invasion)
