What's It All About?
Hi! I am Michaela. I have loved history since I was six years old. I was reading chapter books about Abraham Lincoln by then. When I was seven I started to learn and read about more United States presidents and their lives. I became fascinated with history. In this blog I will share with you my love for history and the things we learn from the past.

Robert E. Lee, The Military Man
In 1860 South Carolina split from the Union. Six other states followed. In 1861 Texas did too. They were called The Confederate States of America.
Some of Lee's friends like Joe Johnston, Jeb Stuart, Richard Ewell and John Hood joined the confederate army along with Lee's three of his sons and a nephew. After thirty six years in the United States Army, Lee must now fight against it. What laid ahead for the nation he loved?
