God Save the SouthGovernor, if I had foreseen the use those people designed to make of their victory, there would have been no surrender at Appomattox Court House; no, sir, not by me. Had I foreseen these results of subjugation, I would have preferred to die at Appomattox with my brave men, my sword in this right hand.
        (General Lee to Governor Stockdale in August 1870)
