Robert Edward Lee was born in
Stratford, Westmoreland county, Vir
ginia, January 19, 1807. He was the
son of the famous "Light Horse Harry
Lee." the most dashing cavalry leader
of the revolutionary war. He grad
uated from West Foint in 1829 and
was assigned to duty in the Tegular
army as second lieutenant. During
the Mexican war he gave proof of pos
sessing the highest military skill. He
was in command of the military acad
emy at West Point from 1852 to 1855,
and was then sent to Texas in charge
of a cavalry regiment. In 1859 he was
recalled to Washington, and was
shortly after in command of the force
that captured John Brown at Harper s
Ferry. In 1861 he was promoted to j
the Tank of colonel.
A month later Virginia seceded from
the Union, and Colonel Lee Teslgned
his commission in the United States j
Army. No reasonable man can doubt
that he was brave, conscientious and
self-sacrificing In so doing. He was
then In high favor with the Union au
thorities, and particularly with Gen General
eral General Scott, who was then In command
of the army. Lee knew that a bril
liant career lay before him if he re-
mained with the Union. He was too
well posted on the tremendous re resources

the magnitude of the struggle that was
about to commence. Had he remain
ed with the North instead of going to
the South, he would have been given
nigh rank at once, and the great;
struggle would have ended sooner.
General Lee was at once given a 1
major general's commission In the Con Confederate

command in West Virginia. Here, ow

had no control, he did not distinguish

Peninsular Campaign. Gen. Joseph E.
Johnston was in command of the Con Confederate

but was severely wounded May 31 at
the drawn battle of Seven Pines. On

world's greatest soldiers.
At that time McClellan with an army
of at least 80,000 men lay in sight of
the church steeples of Richmond, and
had Lee been in his place, it is proba probable

a few days after Seven Pines. Instead,
McClellan waited and intrenched. Lee
called to his aid from the Valley of
Virginia the Confederacy's second
greatest soldier. Stonewall Jackson.
Their combined forces were not over
0,000 men. but in a series of battles
from June 25 to July 2, they drove Mc McClellan

they were not fairly checked until the

on the James river. In this campaign
each army lost fully 25 per cent of its
number in killed and wounded.
In the meantime General Pope had
moved another big Union army down
thru Northern Virginia, where there
was hardly any Confederate force to
oppose him. Only Pope's lack of
dash prevented his closing in on Lee's
rear while the latter had McClellan in
front. McClellan's army evacuated
the Peninsula early 1n August and Lee
turned on Pope and defeated him at
Cedar Mountain Aug. 9. Pope fell back
toward Washington, receiving heavy
reinforcements on the way. Lee pur pursued

Harper's Ferry with a large number of
'prisoners and an immense amount of
supplies, and moved on northward.
The Federal government, however, was
able to oppose him with an immensely
superior force. After an indecisive
battle at South Mountain, Lee fell
back to Sharpsburg or Antietam. Here.
Sept. 17, was fought one of the most
desperate battles of the war. Lee had
not exceeding 33,000 men. McClellan
had about 80,000, of which 15.000 were
held in reserve. Both armies lost tre tremendously,

af?aJnst rapier, the two mighty oppon-
ents fought their armies from near
chancellorsville where Hooker was de-
feated to McClellan's old base on the
james. Here Grant grimly sat down
to besiege Petersburg, "the back door
to Richmond." He lost more men
from the Rappahannock to the James
than Lee had, but there were plenty
more where they came from. Iee s
skeleton lines, the men often standing
Ave yards apart, held Petersburg
against three or four times their num

almost ten months. Then they gave
up and retreated and the end came at
Appamatox on April 9. 1865.
Except Frederick the Great of Prus
sia, no modern general has ever fought
so successfully and so long against
such immense odds as Lee had to con
tend against. And Frederick had
many advantages that were denied to
There Is no doubt that Grant was
great general. His victories In the
West were won against armies nearly
equal In numbers to his own, and
sometimes, as at Missionary Ridge
against great natural disadvantages
But it Is probable that had there been
another Lee In the West, Grant would
never have become great. VIcksburg
was naturally much stronger than
Petersburg, and Burnside had a better
chance to win at Fredericksburg than
Grant had at Missionary Ridge. It 's
also true that from the first the sol-
diers in the Union's Western armies
were better able to cope with their
opponents than those In the East
When Grant came to the Army of the
Potomac, he found a tremendous fight
ing machine, a weapon forged in the
heat of successive defeats until it had
nearly its opponent's temper and far
more than its opponent's weight
Almost the only tactical mistake
Lee made was in ordering Pickett's
charge at Gettysburg. Yet It was no
more desperate than some that won
near Richmond a year before, and it
came so very near succeeding as to
justify it by all the rules of war
One of the proofs of the nobility of
Lee's character Is that he took all the
i piame ror this mistaKe. "This is my
fault, boys," he said, to his bleeding
battalions as they reeled back from
Seminary Ridge. How different from
almost any' other general who made ;
mistake during the war. And the fear
ful repulse did not shake the faith o
his army in his judgment.
Says the Encyclopedia Britannica
which is as nearly non-partisan as
book ever gets to be: "With the
final close of hostilities. General Lee
retired to the private walks of life
accepting the results of the war with
a candor and dignity characteristic o
that type of elevated manhood that he
so truly exemplified, and exerting an
influence irresistible and widely ex
tended to bind up the wounds between
the two sections. He accepted th
presidency of Washington College
(now Washington and Lee University
at Lexington. Va and as a public edu
cator passed the closing years of his
life. He died at Lexington Oct. 12
1870, and was buried three days late
in the chapel of the university."
Hero worship is a silly thing when
wasted on unworthy objects, but th
South truly ennobles herself in th
homage she pays to Lee and gives
priceless neritage to ner young peo
pie in keeping his name and deed
bright in their memories.

the faint report of a dis distant

the signal of Tudor, giving notice
that he had reached the Berande,

Sheldon fired his rifle into the air in

had knocked him down was no rea reason

In this fashion he covered a quarter

Tudor was not on the beach at all. Of

It was, It was, nevertheless, a sober

Yet even then it was hard to believe.
Keeping now to the shelter of the

with equal speed they should have

him. The rows of trees, running at
right angles, enabled him to 6ee along
only one narrow avenue at a time. His

might be a hundred feet away or half

far simpler and easier than this pro protracted

tried circling. In the hope of cutting the

upon a fresh clearing where the young
trees, waist high, afforded little shel shelter

stepping out a pace, a rifle cracked to
his right, and, though he did not hear

came to his eara when it struck a palm

if one neglected a chance to get the

caught a glimpse of Tudor, a hundred
yards away, crossing the same avenue
as himself, but going in the opposite
direction. His rifle half leaped to his
shoulder, but the other was gone.

Wishing he had a shotgun. Sheldon
dropped to the ground behind a tree,
slipped a fresh clip up the hollow butt
of the pistol, threw a cartridge into
the chamber, shoved the safety catch
into place and reloaded the empty clip.
It was but a short time after that
that Tudor tried the same trick on
him, the bullets pattering about him
like spiteful rain, thudding into the
palm trunks or glancing off In whining
ricochets. The last bullet of all, mak making

moment, but on investigation found no
greater harm than a nasty lump that
soon rose to the size of a plgeon'9 egg.
Tiring of the endless circling, Shel Sheldon
don Sheldon tried once more to advance direct directly

crafty, taking advantage of his bold boldness

and slipping away on some changed
and continually changing course. For
an hour they dodged and turned and
twisted back and forth and around and
hunted each other among the orderly
palms. They caught fleeting glimpses
of each other and chanced flying shots
which were without result On a
grassy shelter behind a tree Sheldon
came upon where Tudor had rested
and smoked a cigarette. The pressed

making them Into the vicious dumdum
prohibited In modern warfare. Shel Sheldon
don Sheldon knew now what would happen to
him If a bullet struck his body. It
would leave a tiny hole where it en entered,
tered, entered, but the bole where It emerged
would be the size of a saucer.
He decided to give up the pursuit
and lay down In the grass, protected
right and left by the row of palms,
with, on either hand, the long avenue
extending. This he could watch. Tu Tudor
dor Tudor would have to come to him or else
there would be no termination of the
affair. He wiped the sweat from his
face and tied the handkerchief around
bis neck to keep off the stinging gnats
that lurked In the grass. Never had
hefelt so great a disgust for the thing
called "adventure." Joan had been
bad enough with her Baden-Powell and

Midway he stopped, as if debating

splendid mark, facing his concealed

knocking him down.
"Hope 1 haven't killed the beggar."
Sheldon muttered aloud, springing to
his feet and running forward.
A hundred feet away all anxiety on
that score was relieved by Tudor, who
made shift with his left band and
from his automatic pistol hurled a rain
of gullets all around Sbeldon. The
