The photograph shows Robert E. Lee Jr. , the third son, sometime after the end of the Civil War. Robert Jr. became important in the Robert E. Lee historiography in the 1890’s with the publication of his Recollections and Letters of General Lee, an intimate memoir of his father. It is the only book about Robert E. Lee written by one of his immediate family.
