Robert E. Lee's Civil War Battles

By January 10, 2014

Follow me on:

Robert E. Lee, Confederate General Robert E. Lee was the son of Revolutionary War Hero Henry "Light-Horse Harry" Lee. Like his father, Lee was an excellent horseman. He had so impressed Winfield Scott during the Mexican War that Lee was asked to command the Northern forces in the Civil War. However, he turned this down because he did not wish to fight against the South. When Virginia seceded, Lee resigned from the US military and took command of the Virginia's military. He would later be given command of the Army of Northern Virginia. During the war, he was involved in many key battles including the Second Battle of Bull Run, Antietam, Fredericksburg, Chancellorsville, and Gettysburg. Read more about each of these and other Civil War Battles that Lee was involved in:
