  The clean record of conduct that General Lee achieved at West Point wasn't matched by any cadet, before or since.

  In reality, of course, he wasn't the fabled, perfect : "Marble Man." I agree that he had his share of human frailties of mind and body like the rest of us. However, he was clearly exceptional in his time.

  None of General Lee's daughters ever married. The story goes that no other man could measure up to the high standards that they thought their father set. I've never seen anything written by any of them that expressed that sentiment, but it does make for a good story line.
