This is an opinion question, and based on my study of the Civil War, this is what I think. Lee faced a myriad of obstacles throughout the war; and often faced infighting within his own ranks. His army was often outnumbered, lacked supplies, and was unprepared, however; he never left the army and returned home. Instead, he managed to fight a vastly superior force for over four years using his grit, determination, and tactics. Therefore, I would describe him as determined.
