    General Robert E Lee with Traveller, one of my favorite Civil War horses. When Lee first laid eyes upon Traveller he exclaimed he was the finest horse he'd ever seen. What I wouldnt give to have been there at that moment. Lee rode Traveller when surrendered to Grant. Grant was riding Cincinnatti, his 17 hand battle charger.

    This is a rare picture of General Robert E Lee with Traveler. I would like to meet him and watch his actions during the Civil War. I would like to see why he sent Gen. Pickett and his men down the center of the field at Gettysburg.

Lee to Davis regarding the loss at Gettysburg Mr. President Your note of the 27 enclosing a slip from the Charleston Mercury relative to the battle of Gettysburg is received. I much regret its general censure upon the operations of the army, as it is calculated to do us no good either at home or abroad. But I am prepared for similar criticism & as far as I am concerned the remarks fall harmless.
