Biography

American Confederate army general during the American civil war 1861-65; personally opposed to slavery, succession and war. His surrender at the Appomattox courthouse on 4/09/1865 signified the end of the war.

The fourth child of seven, his dad was an officer during the revolutionary war and Governor of Virginia. However when his dad died, the family was left without adequate resources and had difficult times. Robert went to West Point, graduating second in his class in 1829. Handsome, dignified and kind, he made a noble leader in his military career.

Lee married Mary Anne Randolph Custis and they had seven kids. Post-war, he never fully regained his health from the stress of his position and at 58, had no job and his land confiscated. He took the post of president of Washington College.

Lee died 10/12/1870, Lexington, VA.
