1862...General Robert E. Lee was placed in command of the Army of North Virginia
Lee to Davis regarding the loss at Gettysburg Mr. President Your note of the 27 enclosing a slip from the Charleston Mercury relative to the battle of Gettysburg is received. I much regret its general censure upon the operations of the army, as it is calculated to do us no good either at home or abroad. But I am prepared for similar criticism & as far as I am concerned the remarks fall harmless.
OUR NATIONAL HERO...Robert E. Lee... embodied all the qualities we Southerners admire!!!
