    Yes, going to say it. I would support the South in the Civil War. Most of my family was Confederate. I'm no racist and I wouldn't ever support slavery! But Robert E. Lee is a nice man though!

  • Gracie OK

    Robert Edward Lee (1807-1870) commanded the Confederate Army of Northern Virginia in the American Civil War. President Abraham Lincoln had offered Lee command of the Union Army. He soon emerged as a shrewd tactician and battlefield commander. Lee would ultimately surrender to Gen. Ulysses S Grant at Appomattox Court House on April 9, 1865. Lee called for reconciliation between the North and South. After the war Lee became President of what is now Washington and Lee University.

General Robert E. Lee... My ancestor

Agnes Lee, Robert E. Lee's Daughter.

Robert Edward Lee, around age 38, and his son William Henry Fitzhugh Lee, around age 8, c.1845. Growing up, Robert said of his son "too large to be a man, too small to be a horse."During the American Civil War, William served as a commander of cavalry in his father's army of Northern Virginia. Wounded at Brandy Station he was then captured at his wife's house at Hickory Hill. "Rooney" was eventually exchanged and he would surrender with his father at Appomattox Courthouse in April of 1865.

Robert E. Lee should probably be placed on the villains board, but he was a decent man who owned no slaves. Though he fought for the slavocracy and his military expertise probably kept the war going much longer than it should have (thereby killing hundreds of thousands more than might otherwise have been expected), his words and actions at the end of the war probably prevented ongoing hatred and years of guerrilla warfare.
