General Robert E. Lee's Gettysburg Headquarters
(c) Vincent Sardone.
Confident after victories at Fredericksburg and Chancellorsville, Confederate General Robert E. Lee led the Army of Northern Virginia into battle in Gettysburg. General Lee took over a small stone house at the top of the hill as his headquarters. Today it is a museum of artifacts that commemorate the bravery of the soldiers who fought on both sides of the Civil War.
