I don’t know if this stunning looker of a man has been submitted yet, but Robert E. Lee makes my heart pound. Not only was he really really ridiculously good looking, but his role in the Civil War was one of reluctance more than anything else. He was a top student at West Point and graduated second in his class. Lee was offered the position as leader of the Union Army by Abraham Lincoln when the American Civil War broke out. In fact, Lincoln believed that without Lee, the North would lose the war. But Lee told the President that he would have to follow his home state’s decision, whatever they decided. When Virginia seceded, Lee went, too, despite his personal beliefs about the Union needing to remain whole. 
He may have fought on the rebel side, but Lee’s loyalty to his home state of Virginia and the people he loved make him totally crush-worthy. Such a dream boat.
