GENERAL LEE FOCUSED ON WHAT WAS RIGHT

This story was told of General Robert E. Lee: Hearing General Lee speak in the highest terms to President Davis about a certain officer, another officer, greatly astonished, said to him, “General, do you know that the man of whom you speak so highly to the President is one of your bitterest enemies, and misses no opportunity to malign you?”

“Yes,” replied General Lee, “but the President asked my opinion of him; he did not ask for his opinion of me.”
