    General Robert E. Lee with Traveller (British spelling). I thought that I had seen just about every photo of Robert E. Lee, but here is one that is new to me. Lee purchased the horse in February, 1862 and rode Traveller throughout the entire Civil War. Traveller actually outlived Lee, dying shortly after Lee in 1871. I do not think it a coincidence that Lee named his horse, Traveller. Among the various war horses that George Washington rode during the Revolution, one was named Traveller.

This photograph shows General Robert E. Lee. The picture was taken by Mathew Brady, shortly after Lee's surrender to Grant at Appomattox Courthouse. Lee is wearing his confederate uniform.

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.

I was born and raised in Virginia. Though I'm very glad the South lost the Civil War, Gen. Lee was a great leader and a good man and I think it would be especially interesting to seat him by President Lincoln. I would, of course, ask him to bring his noble horse, Traveller.
