Civil War: Robert E. Lee – Man and Myth – HRY 300

This general served his state of Virginia with distinction throughout his life, even though the Civil War ended with his surrender to General Grant at Appomattox. In early 1861, Lee opposed the secession of his home state, but was loyal of the newly established Confederacy. General Lee’s victories against superior forces won him enduring fame as a daring battlefield tactician; however, some of his strategic decisions have been criticized by military historians.
