More people in this nation need to read and apply and live Robert E. Lee's own words.
These, on our nation and fellow countrymen:
"I can anticipate no greater calamity for the country than a dissolution of the Union."
"Obedience to lawful authority is the foundation of manly character."
"Madam, don't bring up your sons to detest the United States government. Recollect that we form one country now. Abandon all these local animosities, and make your sons Americans."
And this, on war itself:
"It is well that war is so terrible -- lest we should grow too fond of it."
