Re: Hand Grenade of the Month October 2017

I agree with much of what Christopher Rein says, but hope I will be allowed some "howevers." No general who earns the deep respect and affection of his troops, to the degree that Lee did, can be regarded as contemptible. His willingness to gamble tactically in desperate situations, as at Chancellorsville and, to some extent, Antietam, deserves our professional respect.
