History does not record very many gentlemen who match General Lee's excellence of character. They average far fewer than one per century.

Yessir, rex. So rare indeed...

You have great statesmen, strategists, generals, leaders, scholars, Christians, husbands, fathers, and humanitarians. In Robert E. Lee you have all of those.

I find that words coming from some one raised in the north may be inadequate. Nontheless, I am in deep admiration.
