George Washington Custis Lee was engaged to Sally Warwick a very close friend to his sister Midred Lee. Sally Warwick's family was a weathly family from Baltimore, MD. Their engaged was announced in the early Spring of 1864 at a social event hosted by a friend of G. W. Custis Lee. Custis Lee was a person of simple tastes and presented his furture bride with his class ring from West Point, which she didn't care for. At that the time it was very hard to find fine jewlery for a good price. The engagement finally ended in early part of Sept. 1864. I've read that there are many reasons "why" the engagment ended. Some say it was because Sally lost interests in the boring overbearing Custis Lee, and others say it was because Custis was too mature for the 17 yr old Southern Bell. Another rumor I read in a journal by a NC Pvt. who was a guard at the Confederate "White House" at the time wrote that 3 months before the engagement ended Custis Lee was known to visit a lady friend who worked in the hospital there. On a return visit by his father R. E. Lee found out about the other "love interest" and the two had a heated discussion about it. Within a few days the engagment was over and the other woman was no longer working in the hospital. Who knows what really happend. In the end Sally Warwick married an Army officer by the last name of Poor. He was 20 yrs. older than Sally but they had a happy marriage and a couple of kids. Hope this helps.
