      General Robert E. Lee. At the outbreak of the Civil War, Robert E. Lee was so respected that President Abraham Lincoln offered him the position of Commander of the Union Forces. Lee’s response was that he would not take sides in the conflict, and would only draw a sword if it were necessary in the defense of Virginia. Posterity has placed Robert E. Lee in the unique position of being one of the most respected military figures of all time.
