She married HENRY "LIGHT HORSE HARRY" LEE, son of HENRY LEE and LUCY GRYMES. Notes for HENRY "LIGHT HORSE HARRY" LEE: Lee, Henry (1756-1818), American military leader and politician, a brilliant cavalry commander during the American Revolution. He was a cousin of Arthur and Francis Lee, born near Dumfries, Virginia, and educated at the College of New Jersey (now Princeton University). Called Lighthorse Harry Lee, he earned his nickname for his frequent successes as an outpost leader. In 1775 Lee joined the Virginia cavalry as a captain, and two years later he was transferred to the Continental army unit of General George Washington in Pennsylvania. He was promoted to major for valor in battle in January 1778 and was placed in command of two troops of horse, a force later increased by another troop of horse and one of infantry. Lee showed a masterly command of guerrilla tactics in his use of this force, harassing the British both on the march and in camp. His capture of Paulus Hook (now Jersey City), New Jersey, which he took in a surprise raid on August 19, 1779, is regarded as one of the most brilliant exploits of the war. Lee was rewarded for this coup by promotion to the rank of lieutenant colonel, and Congress awarded him a gold medal. In 1780-81 he operated in the Carolinas in support of General Nathanael Greene and his Army of the South in the Carolinas, covering, by his ceaseless stinging forays against the British, Greene's retreat across North Carolina to Virginia. Lee resigned his commission because of ill health in 1781. From 1785 to 1788, as a member of the Continental Congress, he supported the adoption of the U.S. Constitution.

Notes for HENRY "LIGHT HORSE HARRY" LEE: Lee, Henry (1756-1818), American military leader and politician, a brilliant cavalry commander during the American Revolution. He was a cousin of Arthur and Francis Lee, born near Dumfries, Virginia, and educated at the College of New Jersey (now Princeton University). Called Lighthorse Harry Lee, he earned his nickname for his frequent successes as an outpost leader. In 1775 Lee joined the Virginia cavalry as a captain, and two years later he was transferred to the Continental army unit of General George Washington in Pennsylvania. He was promoted to major for valor in battle in January 1778 and was placed in command of two troops of horse, a force later increased by another troop of horse and one of infantry. Lee showed a masterly command of guerrilla tactics in his use of this force, harassing the British both on the march and in camp. His capture of Paulus Hook (now Jersey City), New Jersey, which he took in a surprise raid on August 19, 1779, is regarded as one of the most brilliant exploits of the war. Lee was rewarded for this coup by promotion to the rank of lieutenant colonel, and Congress awarded him a gold medal. In 1780-81 he operated in the Carolinas in support of General Nathanael Greene and his Army of the South in the Carolinas, covering, by his ceaseless stinging forays against the British, Greene's retreat across North Carolina to Virginia. Lee resigned his commission because of ill health in 1781. From 1785 to 1788, as a member of the Continental Congress, he supported the adoption of the U.S. Constitution.

Lee, Robert E(dward) (1807-70), brilliant Confederate general, whose military genius was probably the greatest single factor in keeping the Confederacy alive through the four years of the American Civil War. Lee was born on January 19, 1807, in Stratford, Virginia, the son of Lighthorse Harry Lee, and was educated at the U.S. Military Academy.. He graduated second in his class in 1829, receiving a commission as second lieutenant in the engineers. He became first lieutenant in 1836, and captain in 1838. He distinguished himself in the battles of the Mexican War and was wounded in the storming of Chapultepec in 1847; for his meritorious service he received his third brevet promotion in rank. He became superintendent of the U.S. Military Academy and later was appointed colonel of cavalry. He was in command of the Department of Texas in 1860, and, early the following year, was summoned to Washington, D.C., when war between the states seemed imminent. President Abraham Lincoln offered him the field command of the Union forces, but Lee declined. On April 20, three days after Virginia seceded from the Union, he submitted his resignation from the U.S. Army. On April 23 he became commander in chief of the military and naval forces of Virginia. For a year he was military adviser to Jefferson Davis, president of the Confederate States of America, and was then placed in command of the army in northern Virginia. In February 1865 Lee was made commander in chief of all Confederate armies; two months later the war was virtually ended by his surrender to General Ulysses S. Grant at Appomattox Court House. His great battles included those of Antietam, Chancellorsville, Fredericksburg, and Gettysburg. see CIVIL WAR, AMERICAN; see also separate articles on the battles mentioned. The masterly strategy of Lee was overcome only by the superior resources and troop strength of the Union. His campaigns are almost universally studied in military schools as models of strategy and tactics. He had a capacity for anticipating the actions of his opponents and for comprehending their weaknesses. He made skillful use of interior lines of communication and kept a convex front toward the enemy, so that his reinforcements, transfers, and supplies could reach their destination over short, direct routes. His greatest contribution to military practice, however, was his use of field fortifications as aids to maneuvering. He recognized that a small body of soldiers, protected by entrenchments, can hold an enemy force of many times their number, while the main body outflanks the enemy or attacks a smaller force elsewhere. In his application of this principle Lee was years ahead of his time; the tactic was not fully understood or generally adopted until the 20th century. Lee applied for but was never granted the official postwar amnesty. He accepted the presidency of Washington College, now Washington and Lee University, in the fall of 1865; within a few years it had become an outstanding institution. He died there on October 12, 1870. Lee has long been revered as an ideal by southerners and as a hero by all Americans. His antebellum home is now known as Arlington House, the Robert E. Lee Memorial, and is a national memorial. In 1975 Lee's citizenship was restored posthumously by an act of the U.S. Congress.

Children of PRESIDENT TAYLOR and MARGARET SMITH are: i. SARAH KNOX18 TAYLOR, d. 1835; m. PRESIDENT JEFFERSON DAVIS, 1835. Notes for PRESIDENT JEFFERSON DAVIS: Davis, Jefferson (1808-89), first and only president of the Confederate States of America (1861-65). Davis was born on June 3, 1808, in Christian (now Todd) County, Kentucky, and educated at Transylvania University, Lexington, Kentucky, and at the U.S. Military Academy. After his graduation in 1828, he saw frontier service until ill health forced his resignation from the army in 1835. He was a planter in Mississippi from 1835 to 1845, when he was elected to the U.S. Congress. In 1846 he resigned his seat in order to serve in the Mexican War and fought at Monterrey and Buena Vista, where he was wounded. He was U.S. senator from Mississippi from 1847 to 1851, secretary of war in the cabinet of President Franklin Pierce from 1853 to 1857, and again U.S. senator from 1857 to 1861. As a senator he often stated his support of slavery and of states' rights, and as a cabinet member he influenced Pierce to sign the Kansas-Nebraska Act, which favored the South and increased the bitterness of the struggle over slavery. In his second term as senator he became the acknowledged spokesman for the Southern point of view. He opposed the idea of secession from the Union, however, as a means of maintaining the principles of the South. Even after the first steps toward secession had been taken, he tried to keep the Southern states in the Union, although not at the expense of their principles. When the state of Mississippi seceded, he withdrew from the Senate. On February 18, 1861, the provisional Congress of the Confederate States made him provisional president. He was elected to the office by popular vote the same year for a 6-year term and was inaugurated in Richmond, Virginia, the capital of the Confederacy, on February 22, 1862. Davis failed to raise sufficient money to fight the American Civil War and could not obtain recognition and help for the Confederacy from foreign governments. He was in constant conflict with extreme exponents of the doctrine of states' rights, and his attempts to have high military officers appointed by the president were opposed by the governors of the states. The judges of state courts constantly interfered in military matters through judicial decisions. Davis was nevertheless responsible for the raising of the formidable Confederate armies, the notable appointment of General Robert E. Lee as commander of the Army of Virginia, and the encouragement of industrial enterprise throughout the South. His zeal, energy, and faith in the cause of the South were a source of much of the tenacity with which the Confederacy fought the Civil War. Even in 1865 Davis still hoped the South would be able to achieve its independence, but at last he realized defeat was imminent and fled from Richmond. On May 10, 1865, federal troops captured him at Irwinville, Georgia. From 1865 to 1867 he was imprisoned at Fortress Monroe, Virginia. Davis was indicted for treason in 1866 but the next year was released on a bond of $100,000 signed by the American newspaper publisher Horace Greeley and other influential Northerners. In 1868 the federal government dropped the case against him. From 1870 to 1878 he engaged in a number of unsuccessful business enterprises; and from 1878 until his death in New Orleans, on December 6, 1889, he lived near Biloxi, Mississippi. His grave is in Richmond, Virginia. He wrote The Rise and Fall of the Confederate Government (1881)."Davis, Jefferson," Microsoft (R) Encarta. Copyright (c) 1994 Microsoft Corporation.
