By Beau Burris
Burris garnered information from Washington and Lee University, numerous Civil War transcripts, and interviews with historians to write this meticulous and magisterial work on the most unlikely of subjects ... not the oft-studied and celebrated Robert E. Lee, but his horse, Traveller. This book records the years from the time Lee purchased the horse until they were buried side by side near the chapel at Washington and Lee University. Traveller, A Confederate Grey is more than just dusty history. The book takes its readers into events that influenced the nation and still influence it today. General Lee and Traveller demonstrated dedication to duty that is honorable, loyalty that is admirable, and a story that is timeless. Traveller’s life was but a short 14 years, but Burris’ research reveals the amazing number of important events and battles the horse and its rider experienced together, including Gettysburg and Appomatox.
