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

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.

As teachers, it’s tempting at times to present a world as black and white to our students: good or evil, friend or foe, hero or villain. Use this Robert E. Lee mini-poster to help students take off the rose-colored glasses and see beyond the established historical narratives and into the real world of gray. ©2016. 11 x 17 inches. Cardstock.
