Wtf is he even thinking?

This moron could've coup Davis and lead with a junta. No one would literally give a damn.

Everyone in Dixie would have followed his ass.

Southerners will follow him anywhere. Even to hell and back.

      Good. Now the Confederates lost, and he became a villain of the history anyway. So much for "honor" and "religion".

      So I ask again, is he a moron?

            Are you also afraid dogs will replace humans too?
            do you fear cattle?

            its not africans that are the problem, its people who would say
            >bring the dog inside, let the cows live in your house
            that are the problem, the same applies to slaves.

    Because he DIDN'T want that you fool. Such unrestrained despotism was a gross violation of Lee's religious and moral convictions. He was compelled to throw his hat in with the Confederacy even though he had opposed Virginia's secession from the Union because he feared that the Union was going to turn into that very thing.

    >“The consolidation of the states into one vast empire, sure to be aggressive abroad and despotic at home, will be the certain precursor of ruin which has overwhelmed all that preceded it.”

    This man was honestly a fricking prophet in describing what the United States would wind up becoming by the 21st Century. The saddest part is that Lee was even more right than he realized, because not even he had the clairvoyance to foresee the horrors of ideologies such as Marxism, Fascism, and National Socialism.

        I think Lincoln at the time was in the right. Unite the nation, industrialize and abolish slavery into a cohesive nation. Also opposing harsh long term reconstruction of southern states after the war. Robert E Lee was smart though and saw way down the line what would happen eventually. I don't think either man is wrong in their mentality but timing is everything.

    The Confederacy lost when it failed to convince Kentucky to fully secede rather than have its own internal mini-civil war, the war was lost in the West and having a defensible line along the Ohio River would have potentially curbed some of Bragg's moronation.

    The South could go without Missouri, it wasn't as strategically important, but losing Kentucky was their death knell in the West and that knell was rung in 1861 at the very start of the war.

      People go on with “the south coulda won if Lee had done X at Gettysburg” but the Cause was already Lost by that point. Flipping Kentucky and taking St. Louis in 1861 was their best shot, matching the stalemate in the east with one in the west and grinding down the Union’s will to wage war.

      you think this is reasonable because its not radical, but its unreasonable and quite radical, the North was hanging on by a thread. Even in the timeline we have, if you just ran it 10 times over, the Union surrenders even with a victory at Gettysburg, that is how bad they were feeling about the war.
      They didnt know how the South was doing, they didnt know how much they could fight.
      The reality is the Union could take 5% casualties and consider that a reason to end the war while the South could take 30% casualties and still reason to carry on.
      I know its not even or fair or like a game, but thats just how the war was viewed.

      What would've changed if Kentucky had joined the Confederacy?

        It might have slowed down the Union offensive in the west enough to drag out the war, cause political opinion in the north to shift and eventually bring about some kind of armistice. Lincoln was obsessed in 1861 with keeping Kentucky neutral. thus his many “it’s not about slavery, man” statements, and only when Polk occupied Columbus did the Federals follow suit and end the neutrality farce. If the Secesh had been able to hold the rivers in the north and finish those gigaironclads at New Orleans, they might have been able to hold the west long enough to break the Yankees’ will to fight on.

    Lee had no major issues with Davis and said for better or worse Davis was the best the south had for the job. If the Confederacy would've survived though Lee probably would've run for President and easily won, potentially sealing his legacy as a second Washington.

    I'm so sick of armchair civil war historians. No one could have forseen any better than they did, because they didn't. It was the first war of it's kind.
