General Robert E. Lee
General Robert E. Lee was born January 19,1807, in Virginia . Robert E. Lee came to military prominence during the U.S. Civil War, commanding his home state's armed forces and becoming general-in-chief of the Confederate forces towards the end of the conflict. Though the Union won the war, Lee has been revered by many while others debate his tactics. He went on to become president of Washington College.On July 28 , he received orders from the President of the United States to become commander of the Army of the Confederate.

Personal Reflections
When I picked this topic I really didn't know anything about it. As I did research I learn that this battle was important in the American Civil War. It was a hard topic because basically it was just stating facts about the battle.
I realize that soldiers in the army are facing a lot of challenge because some are fighting their own brothers. I feel today that some people in our society really don't understand why we are fighting in wars. I learned that General Lee never gave up on his army he wanted them to succeed in the battle.
