    Prove it. Lee was a leader in the US Army before he remained loyal to Virginia in the end.

    Yes. But you didn't answer the question.

    Did you notice all the blank spaces in the Northern states?

    Geographically, the only place you find a number in the census records are in the south - the border states.

    Would it kill you to say how many millions there were in the South, as opposed to the handful in the North?

    Yes. Numbers do matter.

She probably never taught the War for Southern Independence the same way again.

    NO they do not. Only to South haters, not to those of us who understand life in the 1800's.

    You don't believe Robert E. Lee said that?

    He said it in late January 1861, baby.

    After states had seceded.

    Even if he *had* said it earlier, (which he didn't) does that change the fact he held those feelings about the Union being perpetual?

    Obviously he believed like the majority of Southerners of the time that we did have the right to secede.
