In the fourth and final chapter of our portrait of Robert E. Lee, we see Lee reluctantly forced to go on the defensive, as new Union commander Ulysses Grant presses the attack. After ferocious fighting at the Wilderness and Cold Harbor, Lee attempts to withstand the siege of Petersburg, is finally forced to surrender at Appomattox, and spends his post-war years as president of Washington College (now Washington & Lee University) in Lexington, Virginia.
