It has been said of Robert E. Lee that the essence of him was not found in what he said but in what he did - his life was one long response to the call of duty. Lee was a gentleman. Though he lived at a time filled with possibly this country's greatest conflict and turmoil, he emerged with untainted integrity. He maintained a most humble spirit, despite the fact he was revered as one of the greatest military leaders of all time. Whether friend or foe, liberal or conservative, great or small, the experts, academicians, all historians of Lee share the same opinion - Lee was a remarkable and godly man, of sterling character.
