Robert E. Lee 1863
After turning down an offer from President Abraham Lincoln to command the Union forces, Lee resigned from the military and returned home. While Lee had misgivings about entering a war on the slavery issue, when Virginia voted to secede from the nation on April 18, 1861, Lee agreed to be the leader of the Confederate Forces. In April 1865 Lee surrendered to Grant at a private home in Appomattox, Virginia.
