Fitzhugh Lee, General Lee, Chapter 4: War. (search)
I would have much preferred had the choice fallen upon an abler man. Trusting in Almighty God, an approving conscience, and the aid of my fellow-citizens, I devote myself to the service of my native State, in whose behalf alone will I ever again draw my sword. It was his first and last speech, and under all the circumstances he could safely rest his oratorical reputation upon this, single effort. It is possible, had he selected a public profession after the war, we could have said of him as Pope said of Argyll: The State's thunder born to wield, And shake at once the Senate and the field. He had now entered upon the discharge of new duties and assumed new responsibilities. The bridge over which he had crossed from Colonel Lee, of the United States Army, to Major-General Lee, of the Virginia forces, had been burned behind him. He was enlisted for the war, In the prime of manhood and physical vigor he held what he considered the greatest honor-his State's highest commission.

He resolved to stop Pope, and, if possible, overwhelm him before he coult once began to consider the best way to strike Pope. Finding that his antagonist had practically cg a time between McClellan and Pope, must go to Pope. The anticipations of General Lee had been Pope, which, from their own report, has swelled Pope to ninety-two thousand. I do not believe it, t[34 more...]

at Berlin, below Harper's Ferry. This occupied nine days. A slow concentration of his army in the direction of Warrenton followed. Lee met this movement, and later, on November 3d, marched Longstreet's corps to Culpeper Court House to McClellan's front, and brought the corps of Jackson to the east side of the mountain. He had crossed swords, however, for the last time with his courteous adversary. The axe had fallen, and with it McClellan's official head into the basket already containing Pope's. General Order No. 182 from the War Department, dated November 5, 1862, announced, by direction of President Lincoln, that General McClellan be relieved from the command of the Army of the Potomac, and that Major-General Burnside take command of that army. Late at night, says McClellan, I was sitting alone in my tent writing to my wife. All seemed to be asleep.

s from General Warren's rear division, but dexterously extricated his whole command next morning. While Lee lay at Warrenton on the 13th, Meade was twenty miles south of Bristoe, but, in spite of his night march on the 12th, succeeded in placing his whole army beyond Lee on the 13th, except Warren, who stopped opposite him and only a few miles away. Meade fell back to Centreville and its vicinity, where he prepared to offer battle. The position might have been turned, as in the case of Pope, but the immense works around Washington held out hospitable arms in case Meade again declined the contest. Nothing was accomplished except to demonstrate that the army which first left Gettysburg first assumed the offensive in Virginia. When General Lee retired, Meade followed, and his advance cavalry, under Kilpatrick, was routed by Stuart wheeling about and attacking it in front, while another portion of his horsemen assailed their flank at Buckland on the Warrenton road in an affair ch
