Robert E Lee is the most awesome person of the Civil War
He was a great leader!
Even though he was apposed to the secession of the Confederacy from the Union, but was loyal to his Virginia brothers before his county to the point of trying to win a war that he did not agree with.
He new that he had made a terrible mistake and tried to take responsibility for it by resigning from his role as commander but was denied it.
Near the end of the war with very little supplies for his troops he new it was time to end the war.
