A GREAT SOLDIER
Gen. Robert F. Lee, Commander
' in-Chief of the
Last Section of an Address Delivered
Recently by Dr. John A. Wyatt Be
fore the New York Southern
Society. A Grand Tribute
to a Grand Man.
What of this charge of treason and
what kind of traitor was Lee? A dis
tinguished soldier and citizen of Mass
achusetts, Charles Francis Adams,
reared in tbe New England school of
politics, himself throughout the war
in the army that confronted L/ee, son
of that Charles Francis Adams who as
United States minister to England
durirg the Civil war probably did as
much as any other man to defeat tbe
ciuBe cf the Confederacy, grandson of
John Quincy Adams and great-grand
?on, of that elder Adams who succeed
ed Washington as president of the
United States, a man whoso differed
from L^e in his interpretation of the
duty an American citizen owes as be
tween his States and the central gov
srntoent that he declared he would go
Against Massachusetts for the Union,
aas written this for hlstoay.
"If Robert E Lee was a traitor, so
also and indisputably was George
Washington. Washington furnishes a
precedent at every point. A Virgin
ian, like Lee, he was also a British
subject; he had fought under the Brit
ish flag, as Lee had fought nnder that
of the United States; when, in 1776,
Virginia seceded from the British em
olre he went with his State, just as
Lee went 85 years later subsequently
Washington commanded armies in the
deld designated by those opposed to
them as "the rebels of '76," muoh as
Lee later commanded and at last sur
rendered mush larger armies, also de
signated "rebels" by those they con
fronted. Except in their outcome the
oases were therefore, precisely alike;
and logio is logic. It consequently
appears to follow that if Lee was a
traitor Washington was also."
He furthur says:
"In him there are exemplified those
lofty elements of personal character
which, typifying Virginia at her high
est, made Washington possible. Es
ientially a soldier, Robert E. Lee was
a many sided man. I might speak of
aim as a strategist, bul of this aspect
of the man enough has perhaps been
aald. I might dilate on his restraint
in victory; his patient endurance in
the face of adverse fortune, the serene
dignity with which he in the end tri
umphed over defeat. But, passing over
.ill these well worn themes, I shall
confine myself to that one attribute
of his whloh, recognized In a soldier
by an opponent, I cannot but regard
&h his surest and lof ?lest title to en
during fame. I refer to his humanity
in armB and his scrupulous regard for
the most advanced rules of modern
Denying the contention that war
must be made hell, holding up to exe
cration the authors of the bloodiest
deeds in history, this generous foe and
;reat American said:
"I rejoice that no such hatred at
taches to the name of L6e. Reokless
of life to attain the legitimate ends
:f war, he sought to mitigate its hor
rors. Oppose to him at Gettysburg,
[ here, 40 years later, do him justice.
No more creditable order ever Issued
from a commanding general than that
lormulated and signed at Chambers
burg by Robert E. Lee, as toward the
close of June, 1863, he advanced on a
war of invasion. 'No greater disgrace,'
he then declared, 'can befall tbe army,
and thrc ugh it our whole people, than
.he perpetration of barbarous outrages
ipon the innocent and defenceless.
Such proceedings not only digrace the
perpetrators and all connected wluh
?hem, but are subversive of the dis
dpline and efficiency of the army, and
destructive of the ends of our move
ment. It must be rememoered that
we make war only on armed men.'
"In scope and spirit Lee's order was
observed, and I doubt if a hostile force
ever advanced into an enemy's coun
try or fell back from it in retreat
leaving less cause of hate and bitter
ness tha i did the army of northern
Virginia in that memorable campaign
which culminated at Gettysburg."
In dwelling on this theme, in con
trast to Lee's humanity, may not
"the avenging pen or history" quote
from "Ohio in the War" by the Hon.
Whitelaw Reed, at this time ambass
ador of the United States at tbe Court
of St. James's, who in speaking of
the burning of Columbia wrote:
"It was the most monstrous barbar
ity of this barbarous march. Before
his movement began Gen. Sherman
begged permission to turn his army
loose in South Carolina and devastate
it. He used thiB permission to the
full. He protested that he did not
wage war upon women and children.
But, under the operations of his
orders, the last morsel of food was
taken from hundreds of destitute fam
ilies that his soldiers might feast in
needless and riotous abundance. B^
fore his eyes rose, day after day, the
mournful clouds of smoke on every
side that told of old people and their
grandchildren driven, in midwinter,
from tbe only roofs there were to
shelter them, by the flames which the
w mtonness of his soldiers had kindled.
Yet If a single soldier was punished
for a single outrage or theft during
tbat entire movement we have found
hos stood the test 25 year
bottles. Does this record <
Enclosed with every b
no mention of it Im all the volumin
ous'records of the march."
May not this avenging pen of his
tory which Sumaer invoked record
that order of Gen. Halleck, chief of
staff and military adviser to President
Lincoln, which said to Gen. Sherman,
"Should von capture Oharieston I hope
that) by some accident the place may
be destroyed, and If a little salt should
be sown upon its site it may prevent
the growth of future crops of nullifi
cation and seceslon," and Sherman's
reply in his dispatch of December 24,
1864, "I will bear in mind your hint
as to Charleston, and don't think salt
will be necessary. When I move tbe
Fifteenth Corps will be on tbe right
of tbe right wing, and their position
will bring them, naturally into Char
leston first; and if you have watched
the history of that corps you will have
remarked that they generally do their
work up pretty well. The truth is
the whole army is burning with an in
satiable desire to wreak vengeance
upon South Carolina."
And may it not transcribe upon its
pages tnat other order to his efficient
Lieut. Hunter: "He (Gram) furtner
o? y thathe wanta your troops to eat
ou tVirginia clear and clean, as far as
they go, so that crows flying over it
for tbe oalanee of tbe season will have
to carry their provender with tnem."
Of Loe as a general, President
Roosevelt, In his life uf Tnum? H
' 'The world has never seen better
soldiers than those who followed Lee,
a.-o their leader will undoubtedly
rank as, without any exceptions, the
very greatest of all the great oa tains
that ttie Eugiisn speaking people have
brought fortu?and this, although the
last and ohief of his antagonists may
himself ciaim to stand as the full
equals of Marlborougn and Willing
From no more ctpable source could
higher praise be given.
In the "Story of a Soldier's Life,"
Field Marshal Viscount Wolaeley,
commander-in chief of tbe British
army, speaking of the Seven Daye
"Gen. MoClellan's splendidly equip
ped army had been driven from tbe
^peninsula and Gen. Pope had been
made short work of on the Rappahan
nock. They were unable to cope with
Gen Lee's army though it was far in
ferior in strength. In fact, the Con
federates had won all alone: the line,
thanks to the ably conceived and well
calculated strategy of the great Vir
ginian leader and the brilliant tactics
of Stonewall Jacluon and other cap
able soldiers and to the superior fight
ing qualities of their splendid and pa
triotic rank and file.
"Tnat campaign was a masterpieor
both in conception and execution and
did high honor to the soldierlike spirit
and patriotisn of the ill shod, over
worked, badly clothed regimental of
ficers and men of the Southern army.
"According to my notion of mili
fcary history there is as much instruc
tion both in strategy and in Jiaotics to
be gleaned from Gen. Lee's operations
of 1862 as there is to be found in Na
poleon's campaigns of 1706. Though
badly found In weapons, ammunition,
military equipment, &:., his army had
nevertneks* achieved great things.
His men were so badly shod (Indeed, a
considerable portion had no boots or
shoos.) that at the battle of Antietam
Gen. Lee assured me he never had
more than 35,000 men with him. Tbe
Remainder of his army, shoeless and
footsore, were straggling along the
roads In the rear trying in vain to
reach him In time for tbe battle."
Of this visit to Lee Gen. Wolseley
"As I waited outside cf Gen. Lee'b
tent while bis aide de-camp entered
to tell bim who I was and to deliver
him a letter from the Confederate
secretary of war, I remarked it had the
name of a colonel cf some New Jersey
regiment printed upon It. Subsequent
ly I referred to the faot in my conver
sation with him. He laughed and
said; "You will find every tent, gun,
even our blankets, accoutrements and
all the military equipment we possess
stamped with the [Jolted States ini
tials." Every Incident in tbat visit
Ls indelibly stamped on my memory.
All he said to me then and durin
subsequently conversations is still
fresh In my recollection. It is natural
it should be so, for he was the ablest
general and to me seemed the great
est man I every conversed with, and
yet I have had the privilege of meet
ing Von Moltke and Prince Bismark.
"Gen. Lee was one of tbe few men
who ever seriously Impressed and awed
me with their inherent greatness.
Forty years have come and gone since
out meeting and yet the maj ?sty of
his manly bearing, the genial winning
grace, the sweetness of his smile and
the impressive dignity of his old fash
ioned Btyle of dress come back to me
among the most cherished of my reo
ollections. His greatness made me
humble and I never felt my own in
significance mere keenly than I did In
his presence. Ha was then about 50
years of age, with hair and beard
nearly white. Tall, extremely band
some and strongly built, very ?oldier
like In bearing, he looked a thorough
bred gentleman. Care nad, however,
already wrinkled his brow and there
came at moments a look of sadn^os
into his clear, honest and speaking
dark brown eyes that indicated how
much his overwhelming national re
spnnslbllities had already told upon
him. He was Indeed a beautiful
character and of him It might truth
fully be written 'in righteousness did
be judge and make war.' "
Lleut.-Col. G. F. R. Henderson,
professor of military art and history
in bhe Staff college of the British
army, in his life of Stonewall Jackson,
"If the names of the great captains;
soldiers and sailors be recalled, it will
be seen that it is to the breadth of
their strategical conceptions rather
than to their tactical skill that they
