This is a 18 slide, highly animated, power point presentation on the American Civil War - Key Leaders -Confederate - Robert E Lee. Each of the presentation slides are editable so you can change it to fit your individual needs.
Robert Edward Lee was born on January 19, 1807 in Stratford, VA. The son of Revolutionary War officer Henry "Light Horse Harry" Lee III and a top graduate of the United States Military Academy. He was an exceptional officer and combat engineer in the United States Army for 32 years. During this time, he served throughout the United States, distinguished himself during the Mexican–American War, served as Superintendent of the United States Military Academy, and married Mary Custis.
Lee remains a pivotal, controversial, and complicated figure in American history, revered by some, reviled by others, and a central figure in America's history. In Virginia, where Lee was born, fought in the Civil War, and died -- no matter whether he's viewed as a hero who fought brilliantly and valiantly for states' rights or as a traitor bent on protecting his state's right to own slaves -- his legacy looms large.
