he loved his home state Virginia so he joined confederates.

The Confederate army commander in the American Civil War.

Yes, he was A <-- Notice the A, confederate army commander in the American Civil War. He was a war hero, many battles known; battle of Bull Run, battle of Shiloh, battle of Gettysburg, and many others to lead his troops into battle.

The odds seemed to be always against him. Every time he fought a battle, he found in strategy and not in pride. I could easily count him as one of the better Confederate Generals.

General Lee was appointed General-in-Chief of the Confederate Army in 1865, just in time to sign the surrender documents.
