General Robert E. Lee and Traveller

General Robert E. Lee and his horse, Traveller: One of the most successful human-equine partnerships of all time.

1862...General Robert E. Lee was placed in command of the Army of North Virginia

Robert E. Lee was a military officer in the U. army, a West Point commandant and the general of the Confederate army during the American Civil War. He then became the commander of the Army of North Virginia.

Traveller and General Lee. The Confederate commands of Generals John Hunt Morgan and Nathan Bedford Forrest were mounted almost exclusively on American Saddlebreds, and these horses performed legendary feats of endurance during the war. Because most Confederate horses were privately owned, General Grant's order at Lee's surrender allowed the men to keep their horses and perhaps saved the breed.

OUR NATIONAL HERO...Robert E. Lee... embodied all the qualities we Southerners admire!!!

He was a very honorable man. He didn't believe in slavery and only lead the Southern army because he could not bear to fight against his fellow Virginians.
