General Robert E. Lee

COMING SOON

Robert E. Lee, Confederate General, is remembered as a great tactician who was able to win battles despite being outnumbered and outgunned. After 23 years of distinguished army service he was promoted to Colonel and then served as superintendent of the Military Academy at West Point. On April 18, 1861 Lee was offered field command of the United States Army. The next day he learned that his home state of Virginia had seceded from the Union. Forced to choose between his ties to the Union and his family home, Lee submitted his letter of resignation. Three days later, he accepted the position of commander of the Virginia forces. His formidable reputation grew with victories at Manassas and Chancellorsville. He was promoted to General in Chief of the Confederate Army in February of 1865, but was forced by the prevailing circumstances of the war to surrender to General Ulysses Grant at the Appomatox Courthouse on April 9, 1865. After the war, Lee returned to Lexington Virginia where he spent his final five years as president of Washington College. His example of conduct earned him the respect and admiration of both his soldiers and the nation.

Our Lee stands 11 1/2” tall and includes an authentic officer’s slouch hat, frock coat, shirt, cravat, dress sash, breeches and boots.
