A good feel of life in Virginia before and during the revolution

Living in the part of Virginia that this novel is set in and surrounded by the remains of plantations, homes and towns that are a part of the story really helps to understand just what the Lees had to survive to even exist. I cannot imagine getting on a horse or in a carriage and going from Williamsburg to the Rappahannock let alone Philadelphia. I think the authors did a very good job of bringing to light just how difficult living in Virginia was and just what type of person thrived here. They also brought up the differences the Virginians who lead an agricultural lifestyle had with the Northern states whose population was more city oriented and how that eventually lead to the Civil War. All in all I enjoyed the representation of the lives of these people but do agree that not all of them were as beautiful and handsome as depicted.
