If Lee's men deserved all the credit, then does it stand to reason that anybody other than Lee could have commanded the Army of Northern Virginia with the same kind of success as Lee? Joe Johnston couldn't.

Lee's men loved him and he loved his men, a quality that can't be ignored.

Now, 150 years later, I don't think we need the glaze of the Lost Cause to appreciate Lee's generalship.
