The handsome young man is a young Robert E. Lee.
So, way back in 1861, my buddy Abe Lincoln was like, “Yo Robbie. You wanna control the whole entire Union Army even though you’re from Virginia which is leaning towards not being in the Union anymore? You’re just such an awesome army dude, I think you’d do a good job.” And Robert E. Lee was like, “no,” and fought for the Confederacy even though he disagreed with secession purely out of loyalty to his state.
Forget wanting to tap that, I want to marry that! If he showed that kind of loyalty to his state, I’m pretty sure he’d be awesome at committed relationships. (But I also would like to tap that.)
He married George Washington’s Step-Great-Granddaughter.
He and Ulysses S. Grant were tight during the Mexican-American War.
His estate is what is now Arlington National Cemetery.
