  1. I never thought of Robert E. Lee as a traitor. Virginia had, of course, seceded from the Union. I am just not accustomed to that term associated with his name.

  2. Yes, Virginia had seceded from the Union. However, when joining the United States Army, Lee had taken an oath of allegiance to the United States. By resigning and defecting to an insurrectionary army, Lee became a traitor to the United States Army.
