Why was he in war with himself and his country?

Robert E Lee was in war with himself because he was ready to be the commander of the United States, but with the secession crisis of the Civil War, he had to decide to defend his home state Virginia.  Lee encouraged Americans to became a United nation at the end of the war. You can still visit  Robert Lee’s  house in Arlington today.  It is on the site of the Arlington National Cemetery.
