In Part 2 of our portrait of Robert E. Lee, we see Lee take command of the Army of Northern Virginia after the Battle of Seven Pines. Following successes at the Seven Days' Battles and Second Manassas, Lee gambles on an invasion north of the Potomac River into Maryland, where he has his final showdown with Union General George McClellan near the small Western Maryland town of Sharpsburg, along a sleepy little creek called Antietam.
