One of the greatest general's in all of history. Known for his honorable character, devotion to duty, not to mention his brilliant tactical successes in battle after battle against a stronger foe. He repeatedly won distinction for conduct and bravery during the Mexican-American War.

At the begining of the War Between the States, he was offered commands in both the Union and Confederacy, but choose to be loyal to the South as he was born in Virginia.
"They do not know what they say. If it came to a conflict of arms, the war will last at least four years. Northern politicians will not appreciate the determination and pluck of the South, and Southern politicians do not appreciate the numbers, resources, and patient perseverance of the North. Both sides forget that we are all Americans. I foresee that our country will pass through a terrible ordeal, a necessary expiation, perhaps, for our national sins"- Robert E Lee

*I believe the other poster must be thinking of General Grant who was well known for his drinking.

Get the Robert E Lee mug.
The sexual act where the woman lies down on a bed, and the man sqats/sits over her face, with his body facing away from hers. he then proceeds to cover her eyes with his testicles, and move his anus up along the bridge of her nose.
while doing this, he must be wearing a cowboy hat, and at random times exclaim confederate slogans.
there is no real sexual pleasure gained from this act, however the sheer feeling of domination over the woman is pleasure enough.
girl one: "damn, i hear eric gave sarah the old Robert E Lee last night?"

girl one: "me too, but some girls are just lucky i guess"

Robert E. Lee was a military commander serving the Confederate States of America during the American Civil War (1861-1865). He led the CSA through its most brilliant victories and crushing defeats, most famously when he ordered Pickett's Charge during the Battle of Gettysburg. Despite taking full responsibility for the failure at Gettysburg, Lee remained in command of the Army of North Virginia. Many have said he was a very polite and caring general and was utterly dejected after witnessing the failure of Pickett's Charge. He survived the war, surrendering his army on the last day of the conflict.
Many people say Robert E. Lee was the best general in all the American Civil War.

Get the Robert. E Lee mug.
A confederate general who lost the Civil War. He was a slave owning racist, who, upon the death or Mr. Custis (his wife's father and owner of their inherited land) who had requested his slaves be freed upon his death, ignored those wishes and forced said slaves to work under him for 5 more years.

A real fuckin loser to anyone who isn't a southern hillbilly with little respect and/or empathy for the great injustice that was slavery.
Southern Hillbilly: "Robert E. Lee was the greatest general of all time."
Educated person: "...and a racist piece of shit who was defeated by the superior and morally sound Union Army."
