Robert E Lee freed all his slaves years before the civil war. He he set about the task of rebuilding his state and the nation after the war. From the day that General Robert E. Lee left the army to become once again a private citizen he believed that it was the duty of the southern people to rebuild their homes and churches, and the duty of the nation to unite in a spirit of cooperation to put the Civil War behind them and seek a just and lasting peace there was much more to the man then supporting slavery. Also the democrat party for the most part supported slavery why do we still have them around.
