Robert E. Lee took command of the Army of Northern Virginia on June 1, 1862 after the Battle of Seven Pines. The day that Lee took command was the day that Joseph E. Johnston lost command of the Confederacy's most prominent army. It was the most important of the many intersections in the parallel lives and careers of these two men. Artifacts highlighted in this video include a letter from Jefferson Davis detailing Johnston's wounding and Lee's elevation to command, Joseph Johnston's sword, and many photographs, sketches, and portraits from the Museum's collection.
