Lee's Miserables

I have found an 1899 reference to the Confederate Soldiers reading Les Miserables and referring to it as Lee's Miserables. Pickett and His Men, by Lasalle Corbell Pickett (the widow of General Pickett). The section of the memoir contains a glowing account of how much the written word means to a soldier, and in particular, how much a copy of Les Miserables meant.
