Lee -- Orange, Virginia -- February 17, 1864. Those who personally knew General Robert E.
Lee agreed that faith was the foundation of his life. In sunshine and in storm, in victory and in defeat, observed General John B. Gordon, his heart turned to God. A challenging childhood, the discipline of military life, the burden of command, the hardships of war all were tools of grace that shaped and reflected the faith and character of Robert E.In February of 1864, while in winter camp near Orange, Virginia, Lee was visited by a delegation of army chaplains. I can never forget my first interview and conversation with General Lee on religious matters, recalled the Rev. William Jones, who was one of the chaplains.
As we began to answer his questions about the spiritual interests of the army, and to tell of that great revival which was then extending through the campshe expressed his delight [and] we forgot the great warrior, and only remembered that we were communing with'a humble, earnest Christian. As the chaplains left Lees headquarters, one reminded the general that countless soldiers and civilians prayed for him daily.
The old heros face flushed, Chaplain Jones recalled, tears started in his eyes, and he replied, with choked utterance and deep emotion: Please thank them for that sir I warmly appreciate it. For Lee, it was a typical statement that reflected his humility and his abiding personal faith.
Said one who knew Lee the soldier: He was a foe without hate, a friend without treachery, a soldier without cruelty, a victim without murmuringand a man without guile. The lasting legacy of Robert E. Lee would be measured for generations to come not by military genius alone, but also by the caliber of his character and the fruit of his faith.This is a beautiful collectible limited-edition Print.
