Dominick Mazzagetti presents an engaging account of the life of Charles Lee, the forgotten man of the American Revolution and in whose honor the New Jersey side of the George Washington Bridge-Fort Lee-was named. Mazzagetti analyzes Lee's battlefield successes, his capture by the British, and the damning evidence of Lee's traitorous abandonment of the American cause. He compares the lives and attributes of Lee and George Washington and offers significant observations missing from previous biographies of Lee.
