Robert Edward Lee, son of Henry lee was born on January 19, 1807. His father had been a cavalry officer during the American Revolution, and had been a close friend of George Washington. Most of the family's money had been gambled away by his father, who died in 1818. Lee lived his youth in Alexandria Virginia. He was appointed to West Point in 1825 were he exceeded in his scholastics and graduated with honors in 1829. After graduation, he joined the Corps of Engineers, and assisted in a variety of projects and construction of military bases and ports. Martha Washington's great granddaughter, Mary Ann Randolph Curtis married Lee in 1831. In 1838, Lee was finally promoted to Captain in 1838 during the Mexican War. Lee gained a reputation during the battles of Cerro Gordo, Churubusco, and Chapultepec during the Mexican War. In 1852 he was a superintendent at West point, where he remained for 3 years until 1855 ,when he was made lieutenant colonel of the Second Cavalry. Lee was in charge of the force that suppressed John Brown at Harpers Ferry. Robert E. Lee felt that his loyalty belonged more to the state than the Union. He declined an offer the lead a union army, and joined up with the south, offering his services to Virginia in the April of 1861. Jefferson Davis appointed Robert a General in the Confederate Army. While a general, he failed to stop the invasion of Virginia, and was put in charge of Coastal Defenses, after which he became an advisor to Jefferson Davis. During May of 1862, Joseph E. Johnston was wounded during the Peninsular Campaign. and Lee was thrust into the command of the Confederate's strongest army, which he renamed the Army of Northern Virginia.
This painting is signed by T. Reynolds. This artist does all my Genre and Old World English portrait scenes. Reynolds is a master of Genre type portraits. His works are extremely fine detail and he is very picky about doing certain work I present to him. If its not something he would like to work on he simply will not take the work. He takes more time to do his work than any other artist I deal with but Im always very happy to see the end results. His work is very collectible and is growing in popularity every year. We consider him to be our company’s best portrait artist. Please view the close-up images to see the quality of this artist’s work for yourself.
