His picture is in my office and my son is named Jeb so you know where I stand with Civil War generals. The silver fox was one of the best leaders in our history. Even though I think age was getting him in the end, had his decision making been slightly different at Gettysburg I would be paying taxes in Richmond today. He did more with less than any general in our history short of George Washington.
