Quite a number of the Confederate’s generals were hurt, dead, or dying which made Lee one of the few generals who were capable of leading the army.

After the battle, the Confederacy leader named Robert E. Lee had given up his hope and his confidence of making the Confederacy win and become independent. In a letter from General Lee to Jefferson Davis (Doc C), it says “Therefore in all sincerity, request your excellency to take measures to supply my place.” “No one is more aware than myself of my inability for the duties of my position.” This shows that Robert E. Lee didn’t have confidence in himself or the Confederacy winning after the Battle of Gettysburg, and this is a reason on how the battle was a turning point in the Civil War.
