General Robert E. Lee Speaks Out

“Governor, if I had foreseen the use those people designed to make of their victory, there would have been no surrender at Appomattox Courthouse; no sir, not by me. Had I foreseen these results of subjugation, I would have preferred to die at Appomattox with my brave men, my sword in my right hand.”

— Robert E. Lee (1807-1872) General-in-Chief of the Confederate States army.

    What most fail to understand is that General Lee was only the Commander of the Army of Northern Virginia …

    I was NOT in the Army of Northern Virginia so I did NOT Surrender, and neither did my horse: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a1SsG0gAmLg
