Gen. Robert E. Lee was the most admired military leader in both the Union and Confederate armies. At the beginning of the Civil War, he turned down an invitation to command the Union army, citing loyalty to his home state of Virginia. His skill in battle led to stunning Confederate victories in earlier battles with Union forces. Lee was known for being honest, even in defeat, particularly the defeat of Confederate forces at Gettysburg during Pickett’s Charge. Today, Robert E. Lee is memorialized through the Virginia Memorial, which overlooks the fields of Pickett’s Charge on the battlefield. He is seated atop his horse “Traveller.”The image was provided by http://www.gettysburg.travelFind things to do in Gettysburg: www.wegoplaces.com/PAGettysburg_Region_245.aspx
