Valley Campaign of 1864. Lee sent Jubal Early and his II Corps to defend the Shennadoah Valley against David Hunter and potentially get Grant to send some of his troops against Early. This became an independent command under Early but it was Lee splitting his forces while facing Grant in an attempt to dillute the strength of the forces he had to face.
