A famous family that produced several important statesmen and generals, including Revolutionary War general Light Horse Harry Lee (1756-1818), Declaration of Independence signatory Richard Henry Lee (1732-1794), and General Robert E. Lee (1807-1870), the supreme Confederate commander during the Civil War. Other famous Lees included statesman Francis Lightfoot Lee (1734-1797) and diplomats Arthur Lee (1740-1792) and William Lee (1739-1795).

Also, a hilarious song about said family from the musical 1776.
