150 years ago - with our nation divided over issues of slavery, states' rights, and economic survival - the southern states seceded from the Union to form the Confederate States of America. Like somany Americans caught in the middle, Robert E. Lee, a respected Colonel in the Union Army, was forced to choose between his nation and his state. In a decision that changed American history, Lee declined command of the Union Army and sided with his home state of Virginia.
Lee soon rose to the rank of General and was given command over the Army and Navy of Virginia. Driven by duty and guided by honor, Lee soon achieved legendary status as a true hero of the Confederate South. His dazzling military maneuvers brought about many victories for the outmanned Confederate Army before succumbing to Union forces at Appomattox in 1865. Even in defeat, Lee served as a symbol of courage and dignity, embodying the finest elements of a true Southern gentleman. His brilliance on the battlefield and the determination which he instilled in his men made him one of the greatest military leaders in our nation's history.
