Lee to Davis regarding the loss at Gettysburg    Mr. President    Your note of the 27 enclosing a slip from the Charleston Mercury relative to the battle of Gettysburg is received.   I much regret its general censure upon the operations of the army, as it is calculated to do us no good either at home or abroad.   But I am prepared for similar criticism & as far as I am concerned the remarks fall harmless.

This photograph shows General Robert E. Lee. The picture was taken by Mathew Brady, shortly after Lee's surrender to Grant at Appomattox Courthouse. Lee is wearing his confederate uniform. At the time the photograph was taken, it was unclear what punishment might be given to Lee for his pivotal role in the Civil War.
