|Very interesting discussion!! As I've watched the political career of our current President, I have sometimes thought that certain decisions of his are closely related to some of the decisions of his father, another President (the psychological father/son thing, for lack of a better way to put it). In some cases, for example, a son may "atone for the sins" of the father. Or maybe tries to out-succeed the father--sort of "compete" with him. Anyway, this post is going off the discussion a bit, but Lee did have a military father--renowned in some ways, a failure in others--there must have been some "atoning" and/or "competing" going on for Lee--consciously or unconsciously.
