Four letters written by Confederate generals Robert E. Lee, J.E.B.
Stuart, Stonewall Jackson, and Joseph E. Johnston have been donated
to the University
Library Special Collections Department.
The letters -- three written during the Civil War and one after
-- are the gift of U.Va. alumnus Robert M. Hughes and his wife,
Jean. Hughes is a relative of the late Gen. Joseph E. Johnston,
who wrote one of the donated letters to Hughes' grandfather, Robert
M. Hughes Sr., the great grand nephew of Johnston.
