Traveller Biography

Traveller was the faithful steed of Confederate general Robert E. Lee during much of the American Civil War. Lee purchased him in 1861 and the grey stallion became a familiar sight to Confederate troops serving under Lee’s command. After the war the horse remained with Lee and outlived the general; after Traveller’s death he was buried near Lee’s tomb on the campus of Washington and Lee University.
