Lee was the strategy guy, the broad stroke big picture and from that Stonewall could draw out battle field tactics, like no other. Lee was a westpoint graduate and recruited by both Union and Confed armies. He was a huge George Washington fan and he married a grand daughter of GW. He loved America, USA but his love for his home Virginia led him to join the Confederacy rather than the union. He practiced in the slave economy despite believing it inhumane. So you see he was conflicted, a patriot through and through but in the end chose to rebel against the country he loved. At Appomatox Gen. Grant was cocky.
What is your opinion of Grant? Many northern cities have a Grant street.
