Did you know Robert E. Lee led a unit of U.S. Marines to capture John Brown in 1859?

Yes. John Brown was an abolitionist which meant he wanted to end slavery. Brown believed if he provided guns to slaves, the slaves would rebel against the slave owners. In 1859, Brown raided the U.S. arsenal at Harpers Ferry looking for guns. This was known as the John Brown Raid. Robert E. Lee led the U.S. Marine unit which captured Brown. Did you know Harpers Ferry was located in Virginia at the time of the John Brown Raid? Today, Harpers Ferry is located in West Virginia.

Question:
In which of the following battles did Robert E. Lee NOT participate?
a) Fort Sumter
b) Second Manassas
c) Fredericksburg
d) Chancellorsville

Answer:
a) Fort Sumter.
Fort Sumter was fought from April 12 to 14, 1861. This battle marked the beginning of the American Civil War. At the time of Fort Sumter, Virginia had not seceded from the Union, and Robert E. Lee was still a member of the U.S. Army. When Virginia seceded on April 17, 1861, Robert E. resigned from the U.S. Army because he felt loyal to his home state of Virginia. Robert E. went on to become a brilliant leader for the Confederate States of America. He won great victories at Second Manassas (August 28-30, 1862), Fredericksburg (December 13, 1862), and Chancellorsville (May 1-4, 1863). With the help of his generals, Robert defeated the Union Army for four years.
