Robert E. Lee
Legendary Commander of the Confederacy
The deep rifts that drove America apart during the Civil War were never more deeply felt than in the person of Robert E. Lee. One of the nation's greatest military minds, Lee was torn between his allegiance to his country and to his home state of Virginia.
