BENSON J. LOSSING
The popular artist and historian writes that Robert E. Lee was not a kinsman of George Washington.
Autograph Letter signed: "Benson J. Lossing", 1 page, 5x8. The Ridge, Dover Plains, N. Y., 1874 August 26. To "J. S. Lehmaier", in full: "General Lee was not a kinsman of Washington. He married a great grand-daughter of Mrs. Washington by a former husband. Yours respectfully". Benson John Lossing (1813-1891) wrote popular histories and biographies, illustrating them with his own drawings. For his extremely popular illustrated histories of the American Revolution (1853) and Civil War (1869), he traveled extensively for field research. His Civil War history was illustrated not only with his own drawings, but with photographs by Mathew Brady. Among his 40 books were several about George Washington and his family. Lossing also contributed many articles to Harper's Magazine. Creased and toned. Binding holes in left edge. Otherwise, fine condition.
