Robert E. Lee was a lifelong member of the Episcopal Church. He was very devout, prayed daily, and carried with him always the "Book of Common Prayer"
There is some evidence that, though he was a baptized Episcopal, he did not become devout until he experienced a midlife crisis following the Mexican War.

Robert E. Lee was a leader in the Confederate States of America, which was the South.
There is no known author named Robert E Streeter who has published any widely recognized works.
The site of Robert E. Lee's last victory during the American Civil War was the Battle of Chancellorsville, which took place in Virginia in May 1863. Lee's Confederate Army defeated the Union Army under General Joseph Hooker, but suffered the loss of one of his most trusted commanders, General Stonewall Jackson, who was mortally wounded during the battle.
Robert M. Levine was born in 1941.
It was his most dazzling victory. But it did not lead to anything much. His close colleague Stonewall Jackson was killed in this battle, and the Army of Northern Viirginia was never the same again. And his next big battle was Gettysburg - a humiliating defeat, some say the fatal turning-point of the war.
Robert E. Lee had a relative who had been a military hero who served in the American Revolutionary War. Lee was a brilliant engineer and graduated 2nd in his West Point class.
His background seems to have been a "business" family one and not a high level aristocratic one.
He was originally a colonel in the Civil War but was quickly promoted to major general and was eventually made overall commander of all the Confederate forces.
They were friendly but only slightly acquainted. When they sat down to discuss terms at Appomattox they first reminisced for a few minutes about times they had encountered one another during the Mexican War eighteen years before, when both served in the command of Winfield Scott, on the campaign from Vera Cruz which captured Mexico City.
Grant was a good friend of Confederate Lieutenant General James Longstreet in the "old army". Longstreet renewed the friendship after the war, and became a Republican. Grant gave his old friend several government posts. Other southerners never forgave Longstreet for this apostasy, and there are no statues anywhere in the south of the commander of Lee's First Corps, the man Lee called his "old war horse".
Grant had also been a good friend of Confederate Major General Simon Bolivar Buckner. Grant first made a name for himself in the Civil War by forcing the surrender of Fort Donelson on the Tennessee River. Other commanders had made all the mistakes that lost this campaign for the south, then boarded a steamboat and departed, leaving Buckner to surrender Fort Donelson to Grant. It was the first time Buckner had seen Grant since he loaned him the money (several hundred dollars - serious money in those days) to get home when Grant resigned from the Army. Buckner asked Grant for his terms and Grant said nothing but immediate and "unconditional surrender" were acceptable, which is where Grant got his nickname. Buckner thought Grant's failure to offer any terms was ungenerous. There is no record of Grant ever repaying Buckner for the loan. Buckner's son, Lieutenant General Simon Bolivar Buckner, Jr. was one of the two highest ranking US Army officers to die in WWII, and the only one killed by the enemy, on Okinawa.
Robert E. Hillard was born in 1917.
3 stars and which caused some confusion because the rankings for confederates was that 3 stars on your collar showed you were a colonel unless they had a wreath around them which made you a normal general
Gen. Robert E. Lee was the commander of the Confederate Army in the East. He was a brilliant strategist and beloved my his soldiers. As to friends he probably had many, but for a commander true friends would be few.
Allowing JEB Stewart's cavalry to try to ride right around the Union army at Gettysburg.
It took much longer than expected, and Lee was unable to get vital information about the enemy's position until the end of the second day.

Confederate General Lee personally believed himself responsible for the 23,000 killed at Gettsyburg, Pennsylvania.

Trying to invade Pennsylvania in July 1863 - according to Longstreet, one of the Generals blamed for the defeat at Gettysburg.
Otherwise his strategies and tactics were very sound.
His basic mistake was to throw in his lot with the Confederates in the first place. If he'd stayed in the U.S.Army, the war would not have lasted long.
Grant had Lee's forces completely surrounded with superior numbers. Lee did not have provisions or ammunition enough to fight a battle, and his forces had dwindled severely from desertion. To have fought would have been suicidal.
Andrew Johnson Lee was never granted an individual pardon during his lifetime. He applied for one but it was not acted upon, apparently because the required oath of allegiance was misfiled. Johnson's Amnesty proclamation of July 4, 1868 applied to all former Confederates not actually under indictment, and required no oath, but this still didn't help Lee, who had been indicted for treason in June 1865, though the indictment was never proceded with.However, at Christmas 1868 President Johnson issued a further amnesty which did not make this exception, so that Lee was included in it, even though not mentioned by name. Lee's citizenship was restored by Congressional resolution and a pardon was granted posthumously effective 13 June 1975 by Gerald R. Ford.
The campaign of summer 1863 which ended in defeat at Gettysburg
After graduating from West Point, Lee became a member of the US. Army and began a long and remarkable military career. He distinguished himself in the Mexican War earning three honorary field promotions. His accomplishments were many including Assistant to the Chief of the Engineer Corps and Superintendent of West Point. In later years he was appointed President of what is now called "Washington and Lee University" in Lexington, Virginia. President Lincoln had asked Lee to command the Union Armies and respectively rejected this notion. Robert E. Lee vigorously opposed slavery and as early as 1856 made this statement: "There are few, I believe, in this enlightened age, who will not acknowledge that slavery as an institution is a moral and political evil." Lee also knew that the use of slaves was coming to an end. Cyrus McCormick's 1831 invention of the mule-drawn mechanical reaper sounded the death knell for the use of slave labor. Before the Civil War began, 250,000 slaves had already been freed.
Historical Fact: Robert E. Lee's Mother Buried Alive
Gen. Robert E. Lee, the military hero, was born 15 months after his mother had been laid to rest in her casket in the family vault on Arlington Heights. Warfield Lee of Catlettsburg, Ky., who is familiar with the incident, is in a position to know for he is a grandnephew of General Lee. The distinguished military leader was a brother of Warfield Lee's father, Samuel Lee.
He tells the story as follows: Lighthorse Harry Lee's wife was very ill in 1809. Her condition grew steadily worse until one day four physicians pronounced her dead.
She lay in state in the great Lee mansion on Arlington Heights for four days.
On the sixth day she was removed to the family mausoleum.
On the seventh day, the sexton went into the mausoleum to lay flowers on the casket and sweep the floor, for the day had been quite rainy and the shoes of those following the distinguished woman to her final rest dropped considerable mud.
This was taken from a newspaper article. Lee's other did suffer from narcolepsy.
There are other reports that she was in the crypt for three days which is more believeable (but also may be Messianic).
Because his native state of Virginia voted to join the Confederacy.
Otherwise he would have fought for the Union, and Lincoln had already offered him the job of General-in-Chief.
Lee was not pro-slavery and he was against secession.
