The Civil War, Day by Day

The Virginia Gentleman


The Virginia Gentleman

Robert E. Lee was the son of an American Revolution hero, a high-ranking graduate of West Point, and a soldier with thirty years’ experience when civil war began. Opposed to both the institution of slavery and the use of secession as a political weapon, Lee cast his lot with the Confederacy because his beloved country - Virginia - had taken that course.
