Robert E. Lee at age 31, then a young Lieutenant of Engineers, U. S. Army, 1838
  • The gentleman does not needlessly and unnecessarily remind an offender of a wrong he may have committed against him. He can not only forgive; he can forget; and he strives for that nobleness of self and mildness of character which imparts sufficient strength to let the past be put the past~Robert E. Lee
