General Robert E. Lee - 1863.

William Paul Roberts (July 11, 1841-March 28, 1910) was a brigadier general in the Confederate States Army during the American Civil War. He was the youngest Confederate general officer to serve in the War. According to tradition, General Robert E. Lee presented Roberts with Lee's personal gauntlets in recognition of Roberts' distinguished service. He continued the command of his brigade at the Battle of Five Forks, & eventually surrendered at the Battle of Appomattox Court House, 1865.
