re: Robert E. Lee Was A Far, Far Better Man Than Mitch Landrieu - AU86
As I recall the Army of Northern Virginia was on a pretty damn good roll at that time. Fredericksburg, 2nd Manassas, Chancellorsville. Gettysburg was the battle that cost Lee command structure in Officers that he never really recovered from. But as late as 1864 there were several rising stars as fa...

Alan T Nolan is the most biased writer of anything to do with that war. He bashes anything and everything related to the Confederate Army. :lol: :lol:...

re: Robert E. Lee Was A Far, Far Better Man Than Mitch Landrieu - AU86
Don't you think that Lee's assumption that the center was weak was as good of an argument as Grant's assumption of the weakness of Lee's army at Cold Harbor? Meade did have an advantage of interior lines so that he could maneuver troops to different locations quickly but Ewell totally screwed up the...

[quote] Not true. Grant was given the monicker of "butcher" in the aftermath of the Battle of Shiloh (April 6-7, 1862).[/quote] [img]https://media.giphy.com/media/3oz8xLd9DJq2l2VFtu/giphy.gif[/img]...

[quote]On the other hand, you have Lee's assaults on Malvern Hill in 1862 and Cemetery Ridge in 1863 that made no strategic sense whatsoever.[/quote] Are you arguing that Grants assault at Cold Harbor made more strategic offense than Lee's assault on Cemetery Ridge? If Lee had split the Army of t...

Grant got his reputation as The Butcher because of his casualties in the Overland Campaign. He did not have that reputation until then. Lincoln stuck with him in spite of the howling and objections to Grant during that campaign....

re: Robert E. Lee Was A Far, Far Better Man Than Mitch Landrieu - AU86
I have read that book and it is pure fiction. Logistics is one reason that Lee did not disengage at Gettysburg. Longstreet's claims came after the war and after Lee was dead. He was trying to defend his own reputation that was under assault by Jubal Early and others. I do think that Longstreet proba...

re: Robert E. Lee Was A Far, Far Better Man Than Mitch Landrieu - AU86
What would Lee have gained by winning another defensive victory? He had won Fredericksburg, 2nd Manassas and Chancellorsville and still had not destroyed the Union Army. Lee knew that the South's resources were dwindling and that they could not sustain a prolonged war. He was going after the knockou...

[quote]You just walked right into the point I am trying to make. What did Lee gain from those battles, as well as others like them, other than massive casualties and a couple of victories here and there? The answer: absolutely nothing. Grant was suffering fewer casualties at lower casualty rates tha...

“Duty is the sublimest word in our language. Do your duty in all things. You cannot do more. You should never wish to do less.” Robert E. Lee “He possessed every virtue of other great commanders without their vices. He was a foe without hate; a friend without treachery; a victor without oppres...
