Calendar of transcripts including the annual report of the Department of archives and history (Virginia), No Author Listed
85 No Author Listed Calendar of transcripts including the annual report of the Department of archives and history (Virginia)
Richmond, VA Davis Bottom, Superintendent Public Printing 1905 First Edition; First Impression Paperback Very Good with no dust jacket 
Not a reprint but the original publication printed in 1905.Uncut pages.Very clean contents. Marbled end papers 1/4 leather spine and corners worn and cracked. A unique bookplate in front has the handwritten note that "This book belongs to Douglas Southall Freeman" as it came out of his personal library. Freeman was born in Lynchburg, Virginia, the son of a Confederate soldier during the American Civil War. His father was Walker Garland Freeman and his mother was Bettie Hamner. He did his undergraduate work at Richmond College where he joined the Fraternity of Phi Gamma Delta. He received his Ph.D. in history from Johns Hopkins University at the age of 22.A long-time resident of Richmond, Virginia, Freeman served as editor of The Richmond News Leader from 1915 to 1949. However, it was his work as a historian and biographer that earned greatest recognition.He won Pulitzer Prizes for two of his books, his four-volume biography of Robert E. Lee, and his seven-volume biography of George Washington (a seventh volume First in Peace was written after Freeman's death by J. A. Carroll and M. W. Ashworth, two of his historical associates). He was also the author of the three-volume Lee's Lieutenants: A Study in Command.Freeman's treatments of the American Civil War are often cited as examples of the Lost Cause movement, emphasizing the glory and nobility of the Southern generals and the futility of their fight against the power of the North. While Freeman certainly does emphasize the nobility of Lee's character, he does not say that Lee made no mistakes, nor does he say that the North only won because of superior numbers. For instance, this passage shows Lee misjudging his real opponent, and also expresses admiration for Abraham Lincoln's character:[1] rare if not unique. ; 8vo 8" - 9" tall
