Traveller

Horse

Born: 1857
Died: c. 1871
Birthplace: Greenbrier County, Virginia (now West Virginia)
Best known as:

Robert E. Lee's celebrated horse

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.
