Army of Northern Virginia, army of legend,
Who were your captains that you could trust them so surely?
Who were your battle-flags?
Call the shapes from the mist,
Call the dead men out of the mist and watch them ride...
Army of Northern Virginia by Stephen Vincent Benet

Meet the Generals.

Among the top Living History groups in our time is Lee's Lieutenants. Spanning the years of the American Civil War from the first shots fired in Charleston Harbor through the surrender at Appomattox, come witness the rich poignant portrayals of the distinctive personalities of General Robert E. Lee, his generals, officers and brave soldiers of the Army of Northern Virginia, important political figures of the Confederacy, and Southern civilians from all walks of life who were caught in the storm created by the clash of great armies.

Let them carry you back to a simpler time of honor and courage when hope was still high for a Southern independent nation. Hear the Generals and officers speak of their tactics, explain their reasons for their actions, and tell stories of their experiences on the battlefield and at home. Meet the politicians, nurses, Confederate spies, refugees and the wives left at home to cope alone. Bring them any questions you have.

There are few Living History groups that bring such a wide variety of perspectives and knowledge of the Civil War to the public. Plan a visit soon.
