Contesto: American Civil War

Domanda: Which sides did Lee and Grant represent?

Lee supported The Confederate States and Grant supported the Union

E' possibile usare in questo caso il verbo "support" come sinonimo di represent nel senso che sostenevano/appoggiavano queste due parti o support è più indicato per una causa (tipo Lee supported the reasons of the South!)

Grazie

    Sorry but are you asking if this use of the word support makes sense, or are you translating something? If so you should give us the Italian.
    In any case, I would say that support here is not the right word, since these men led the armies of each side. Support would make more sense regarding where someone's sympathies lay.
