This photograph shows General Robert E. Lee. The picture was taken by Mathew Brady, shortly after Lee's surrender to Grant at Appomattox Courthouse. Lee is wearing his confederate uniform. At the time the photograph was taken, it was unclear what punishment might be given to Lee for his pivotal role in the Civil War.

Lee to Davis regarding the loss at Gettysburg    Mr. President    Your note of the 27 enclosing a slip from the Charleston Mercury relative to the battle of Gettysburg is received.   I much regret its general censure upon the operations of the army, as it is calculated to do us no good either at home or abroad.   But I am prepared for similar criticism & as far as I am concerned the remarks fall harmless.

They do not know what they say. If it came to a conflict of arms, the war will last at least four years. Northern politicians will not appreciate the determination and pluck of the South, and Southern politicians do not appreciate the numbers, resources, and patient perseverance of the North. Both sides forget that we are all Americans. I foresee that our country will pass through a terrible ordeal, a necessary expiation, perhaps, for our national sins. Robert E. Lee

Confederate General Robert E Lee Quote - "A Traitor? I swore an oath to my native state to defend against all invaders. How could I leave my beloved Virginia? It is not I who was a traitor."
