Robert E. Lee
By Cathy Pearl
  

1     The South had many advantages during the Civil War. One of these advantages was their military leaders. Many of the best generals fought with the Southern army. One of these generals was Robert E. Lee.
 
2     Lee was born in Virginia in 1807. His father had fought in the Revolutionary War. Lee was well educated. He entered West Point in 1825. Four years later he graduated. He was second in his class.
 
3     Lee served in the Mexican War. He was recognized for his bravery during the war. This military experience would help him when the Civil War broke out.
 
4     Many Southern generals were torn when the war broke out. Did they stay and fight with the Union army against their home states? Or did they join the Confederate army and fight against the country they had promised to serve?
