Robert Edward Lee Lee is a gentleman an honorable man and a religious man with considerable patience Optimistic and idealistic he believes his men can do anything Lee was one of the most beloved men in the American south He is soft-spoken and cares about his men but will use them for the cause He believes deeply in God and feels God controls every outcomeThe Lee comes across as enthusiast blindly going forward in spite of the possible better advice of Longstreets more modern tactics and others While Lee was a strong commander who didnt hesitate in his decisions casting him as unyielding and passionate may not be totally accurateEven within this story Lee struggles with decisions and considers all possibilities before picking a course of action Throughout this battle Lee constantly rethinks his plans to counteract changes in circumstances errors made by his commanders or his orders being disobeyed He is not firmly attached to any plan if another will better accomplish his goalLee is a risk-taker makes risky and daring decisions The North can outlast him in men and supplies Also his heart problems show up in the story which will one day kill him and are a reminder that he may not last the war He will not pass up the fight at Gettysburg if at all possible and not retreat I even read somewhere that historians speculate he had a mild heart attack during the battle of GettysburgVirginia is Lees main concern Virginia represents the Confederacy to him and He fights on the confederacy side since his home state of Virginia choose to succeed from the UnionHe is more of an offensive leader and doesnt favor defensive positions His command style is loose as he trusts his men to execute their orders without him keeping a watch full eye on them It is bad because his complete trust in his men results in failure such as Stuart being out of contact
