Description

For this year’s Reading Lee series lecture, join

Dennis Frye, at 7:00 p.m. in the Central Rappahannock Regional Library
Headquarters Theater, 1201 Caroline Street, Fredericksburg, Virginia, for a
talk “Lee’s Great Expectation of 1862.” The talk is free to the public.

The Confederacy was at its zenith, and Lee knew
it. “The present seems to be the most propitious time since the
commencement of the war for the Confederate Army to enter [the North],” wrote
General Lee to President Davis on the first Wednesday of September, 1862.
Confederate independence seemed possible, if not probable. Now was the moment.
But two week later, Lee was in retreat; he had suffered his second defeat;
and the South’s rising tide had collapsed. What happened?

The lecture will last around one hour and will
be followed by a question and answer segment. Seating is limited so plan to
arrive when the doors open at 6:30 pm.
