Happy Birthday General.

The two southern gentlemen Lee and "Stonewall" Jackson, although owning slaves, spoke out against slavery and understood as did Jefferson Davis that irregardless of the outcome of the War for Southern Independence that the question of slavery was already determined. The same can not be said of Lincoln and Grant who on more than one occasion spoke ill of african slaves.
