  I'm sure that you'd agree that there are many, many disreputable scoundrels on both sides who are worthy of villification. However, it would be most unfair for anyone to place General Lee on such a list.

Absolutely. He was a mortal and was fallible, but at the same time, he was what we sort of wish our father was and definitely what we hope our sons will become. The very idea that he could complete his entire career at West Point without so much as one demerit boggles the mind.
