Lee to Davis regarding the loss at Gettysburg    Mr. President    Your note of the 27 enclosing a slip from the Charleston Mercury relative to the battle of Gettysburg is received.   I much regret its general censure upon the operations of the army, as it is calculated to do us no good either at home or abroad.   But I am prepared for similar criticism & as far as I am concerned the remarks fall harmless.

When asked the question, "What race of people do you believe make the best soldiers?"  His reply:  "The Scots who came to this country by way of Ireland.  Because they have all the dash of the Irish in taking up a position and all the stubborness of the Scots in holding it." (Gen. Robert E. Lee)
