odd. i did it and got Robert E. Lee...... who is actually a relative of mine. he's like my great great great uncle or something. i didn't even TRY to get him...hmmmm!

Lee is widely regarded as one of the greatest generals in US history. Personally opposed to slavery, he only joined the Confederate army after Virginia seceded from the Union. Some say that he personally prolonged the war at least two years with his tactical brilliance.
