A HERO’S CONSCIENCE: A STUDY OF ROBERT E. LEE by Gamaliel Bradford, Jr.

A friend’s query on where to find a quote led me to this fine article. The older historians knew and believed things about America’s War Between the States that many modern historians do not. If you wish to understand the real Robert E. Lee, this article provides fine insights and wonderful quotes. I did not keep the original pagination of the article, but you can find this article archived in the entire issue on the Web in pdf form.

  1. Since Bradford was a Massachusetts Yankee, it’s no surprise that he mistakenly believed that Lee and the South were fighting for slavery. Take that paragraph out and the piece is pretty good.
    Thanks for finding and putting this piece here, sir. Happy New Year!
