ROBERT HDWARD LE -
By James R. Randall.
* ~ As a Soldier.
The. military opei-ations of Lee .are
Sbriefly but epigrammatically narrated
by Prof. Shepherd. We think that
the only shadow on the perfection of
Lee as a soldier of the very first or
der was that he resembled Hannibal
rather than Alexander the Great, or
Ceasar. He knew how to win victorie3
and was unsurpassed in defensive
warfare, but did not always know
how to reap his triumphs. How much
he may have been thwarted by his
auxiliary Generals, or by what Shil
ler, as translated by Coleridge, calls
S"the unspiritual god-Circum
stance,"' we may not venture to ora
cularly declare; but he seermed to
somewat lack that quality so con
spicuous in Jackson and even more
notably in Forrest, of relentless pur
suit o:f the enemy and is capture
or annihilation. In that respect For
rest was a "heaven-born General,"
like Clive, and had he been in com
mand in the West instead of the
wooden-headed Bragg, and the reek
less Hood, with men like Cleburne at
his side, the Western Army of the
Confederaey would have matched in
successful glory the triumphs of the
FArmy of Northern Virginia. But For
rest was a phenomenal soldier, and
nothing else, while Lee towered above
all of his Generals and all of his civic
contemporaries in those moral quali
ties which ally us to the heavenly
choir. Why he did not, after Burn
side was overwhelmingly and disas
trously defeated at Fredericksburg,
drive the Federal General and his
discomfited army into the Rappahan
nock river, or bag the whole force, I
have never had satisfactory explana
tion. Jackson advised a night attack,
but his plan was not adopted. He
was like Forrest; he saw no use in
oaining victories without substantial
results, and believed that a beaten
enemy should be kept on the move!
and either captured or demorahizeg
Lee preferred to "build a golden
bridge for a flying enemy.'' This was
elassic proverb; Forrest neither
knew norard or ue epi. irms

said to Bragg, after the tremendo
Confederate victory at Chickamano
"one brigade of infantry and wi
my cavalry, I will drive Rosecra
into the Tennessee river, or captu
his whole army." I believe he wou
have done it, just as Burnside wou
have been compelled to surrender
Fredericksburg had a man like Fo
rest been in command or Jackson li
tened to. The defeat and capture
Burnside would have left no organi
ed army of the North between L
and Boston, just as the capture ,
Rosecrans would have opened up t]
West and prevented the disasters th
subsequently came upon us. I remai
ber riding with Dr. Gaston, one i
the chief surgeons in Lee's army, a
ter the battle of Gettysburg. He sai<
"There never stepped on this plan
such an army as Lee led into Pennsj
vania. They felt capable of defea
ing any Yankee force, composed
no matter how many foreign ai
bought soldiers, and Lee had t]
same opinion of them. Yet Stuai

however unconsciously, in that battl
and Lee himself, in trying to repa
the blunders of his Generals, counti
too much on the miracles of valor thi
could perform when he ordered t]
onset of Pickett and Pettigrew up'
heights which, but for Early, wou
have been occupied by Confederat
after the first day's battle. Mead
in assault, would have been cut
pieces as Grant was afterward
Cold Harber, and his retreat to Was
ingon would have been disastre
beyond conception. I asked Maj
Kyd Douglass what caused the r
pulse at Gettysburg.. He answer
me as he had done the Comte
Paris: "'Stonewall Jackson w
deid," meaning that had Jacks(
been alive in command of his o
corps and along with the vangua
coiamanded by Early, he would ha
occupied, not Gettysburg town, b
the trategic Gettysburg, the inviro
ing heights of Little Round Top a
The Spiritual Side.
But there was in Lee something
much greater than military prowe
o the first order that all physical
material. talent sinks into almost i
sinifi sance. It was his virtue, b
soul. his supernatural natare that,

What Might Have Been.
Then, after lovingly tracing L
through his almost perfect course<

then to the heart-break of his diss
lution, Professor Shepherd comes
that remarkable final chapter of b
book treating of the calamity whi
befell the human race when "Enrop

Dr. Brickell, states it, overwhelma
the physical south in arms. I unde

chiefly because of this chapter, reft

library. This was a prodigious blu

to say that I endorse every word1
Prof. Shepherd's final summing 1
and have, in my own poor way, f
years, feeb~ly expressed what he f
rulates, though speculatively, with
"pomp of purple words" and vera
os eloquent. The one a
gument in oposition to_ h
thesis is that as God Pe
mitted the overthrow of the Confe

teous verdict. This is mere fallae
