Lee was a true Virginian in every sense of the word. His loyalty to Virginia is to be admired, not criticized. His efforts as commander of the Army of Northern Virginia is still studied in military schools as getting the most out of the least in terms of military supplies. His battles are still studied for winning with tactics that defeated armies twice his size. Lincoln had individuals approach Lee to command the Union Army(s) before Lee resigned his commission to join the Confederacy. Lee's mistakes during the battle of Gettysburg show him to be less than perfect. One criticism of Lee comes from Southerners who say he was more interested Virginia than he was in the Confederacy. If it is so, then so be it. You have no reason not to be proud of him as a man and as a soldier.
