On The Cover: A photograph of Robert E. Lee, taken in March 1864, less than a year after the Battle of Gettysburg, reflects his confidence after leading the Army of Northern Virginia since June 1862. Though many have blamed subordinates for the Gettysburg loss, Noah Andre Trudeau makes a case beginning on page 14 that Lee's own overconfidence and failure to coordinate led to the defeat, a fatal Rebel setback.
