The Enigmatic Genius of Robert E. Lee

"Our final question concerns the enigmatic genius of Robert E. Lee. Listen. A high dinesh, I just listened to your episode one 29 in which you stated that you thought that Robert E. Lee was one of the best journals of all time. I wanted to bring your attention to a book called lost victories the military genius of Stonewall Jackson by Bevin Alexander. He makes a compelling argument that Stonewall Jackson while he was in the Shenandoah campaign. He separately fought three different union armies and defeated all three of them, and then he joined Robert E. Lee's staff and Robert Lee hadn't doing too good before that. But he was really impressed with Stonewall Jackson and listened to his counsel and followed his advice, and that's where all the victories came from. So I really it's just a well researched excellent written book and I hope you have time to take a look at it. Take care. This is fascinating. And my answer is not really going to disagree so much is to try to fill out the argument that I think you're making. A couple of words about Stonewall Jackson. Stonewall Jackson, this is, by the way, general Joseph Jackson, a great military tactician, a strange man, apparently he was highly superstitious he believed that when he wrote a horse, he needed to keep his keep one of his arms outstretched to the side in order to sort of maintain his spiritual balance. He was unrelenting, he was merciless. He was once asked, what should we do with the Yankees and his answer was kill them all, kill them all. And he inspired unswerving military loyalty from his troops, he would send people to into grave danger and in some cases almost certain death, and they would, without questioning his orders, carry them out. So this was obviously a very charismatic man and, as you say, in the Shenandoah valley, he was able to move from point to point, take on different segments of the Union Army thrashed them and move to another spot and do exactly the same thing. And you also write that Robert E. Lee saw him as indispensable when stonewalling Jackson was eventually killed. I believe Robert E. Lee said literally something to the effect of I've lost my. I've lost my right arm. So all of this I think is true, and it raises the question of where then is the military genius of Robert E. Lee? Well, part of it is you actually pointed out yourself when you said that Lee recognized the tactical wisdom of Stonewall Jackson. Remember, that's part of what a general

Groundhog Day gone wrong: Some of the worst moments in the holiday’s history

"There's a pretty good track record of some epic ground. How groundhog day fails. yeah Some of the worst moments in history. Not only for the whistle pig itself. But for its handlers. Pretty controversial moments over the years. It was back on february. second twenty fourteen. You remember this. don't you mayor. Bill de blasio. New york flinched as the handler placed. Chuck in his arms. How much would would with chuck chuck chuck chuck would causing the groundhog to fall to the ground now. The groundhog was actually a female stand in for chuck named charlotte and sadly well passed away several days later. Oh yes but circling the wagons. You had the staten island zoo coming out and saying that it appeared unlikely that the groundhogs death was related to the fall. And that's their story and they're sticking to it now unfortunately back in two thousand sixteen. Stonewall jackson was a groundhog never made to a ceremony on he actually passed away. On the eve of the holiday jackson's death resulted in the cancellation of groundhog day. Ceremonies ending a streak of more than twenty years of predictions at the space farms. Zoo m museum in sussex new jersey and then there was chuck tyson on february. Second of two thousand fifteen. You had mayor jonathan freud. His name of wisconsin. Well let's say. He got a little unwanted attention from jimmy. The groundhog as jimmy chuck tyson. The groundhog bit. The mayor's left ear. that left a mark. Yeah apparently The mayor leaned in to hear jimmy's prediction and got a little nibble instead. Now at first the mayor said there would be an early spring that he was mistaken. I hear too well as jimmy took a chunk out of his ear. Jimmy actually as did punxsutawney phil. This morning predicted six more weeks of winter february. Second two thousand nine. Staten island chuck. Well he bit then mayor michael bloomberg the bite happened just before chuck made his prediction as the mayor reached into the groundhogs cottage. The groundhog has palatial digs and tried to coax him out with some of his favorite sa k s.'s. Can't say i can't say the word because well my little Rudy is sleeping until he hears that word and then he would allow can get very demanding. Apparently chuck's handler swertz said about bloombert's struggle with the rodent while they were trying to lure him out with corn but i guess he was having none of it and then there was twenty sixteen. You had ed the groundhog from turtle back zoo in west orange new jersey. Apparently this large and go up the overslept. And he missed the ceremony. So otis otis. The hedgehog had to fill in apparently the warm weather change to ed's hibernation pattern which caused him to oversleep this according to county officials. So happy groundhog day. Twenty twenty one to which you say. How can you tell. Yeah i hear you. Twenty twenty Groundhog day every day seemingly. So again my suggestion to you this morning. Take it or leave it Why not just flip the script a little bit. Maybe do something a little bit different today. Albeit suggestion is yeah. You want to make sure that you do it

"For want of a nail, the shoe was lost for want of a shoe. The horse was lost for want of a horse. The rider was lost for want of a writer the message was lost for want of the message the battle was lost for want of a battle, the kingdom was lost. Small things can have reverberating effects on history both good and bad. In fourteen fifty three, the great walled city of Constantinople fell it had withstood sieges for eleven hundred years. It had held off fire from the then state of the art cannons for weeks. The Byzantine said even Ford soldiers trying to tunnel under the wall autumn Turks were finally able to overrun the great city because someone left the door open. One of the many gates in the fourteen miles of wall had been left open during the night and the Ottomans flooded in. Killing Constantine the eleventh in the battle and bringing an end to the eastern Roman Empire. My Name's Moxy and this is your brain on facts. It was a freezing Christmas night in Trenton. New Jersey during the revolutionary war. The English Colonel Johann Gottlieb Rall. Commander. Of a mercenary infantry regiment of fourteen hundred has seen soldiers from Germany sat down to a good supper and an evening of entertainment. He and his men were celebrating their recent victories over George Washington's volunteer army, and of course, the Christmas holiday. Safe from the bitter cold and the pelting sleet inside a wealthy merchants home that they had commandeered. They relaxed safe in the assumption that no one in their right mind would possibly try to cross the Delaware River at night in a blinding winter storm. Someone challenged role to a game of chess, and before long he was deep in tactics and strategy. There was a knock at the door. And exhausted young. Messenger boy came in bearing a note from loyalist farmer. It's important to remember that about a third of colonists still consider themselves to be British and didn't want the revolution. Raw paid the boy little notice took the note and put it in his coat pocket without opening it. That pocketed piece of paper would cost him and the war effort nearly. Two hours earlier and ten miles away. Washington's men had begun being ferried across the icy Delaware. River. It took over ten hours to get all twenty four hundred men over to the New Jersey side. The conditions were so adverse five men froze to death. Then began the arduous march to Trenton in the dark. The plan had been to attack the town from all sides before dawn, but the troops didn't arrive until eight am. During the attack which lasted only an hour forty of the German. Henson's were killed and the remaining thousand surrendered. Colonel was mortally wounded. When his body was found the unopened note warning of Washington's crossing was still in his pocket. If role had read it, he would surely have had his gross of professional soldiers prepared. He allowed his pride and the weather to lull him into thinking his enemy was not a threat. Had he won the battle he may well have killed George Washington James Madison James Monroe John Marshall Aaron Burr and Andrew. Hamilton The. Second, most common premise in alternate history circles behind what if Germany won World War Two is what if the south one the American civil war? Two pieces of paper dropped in a farmer's field almost brought that about. Confederate General Robert E. Lee. Whose statue in the middle of my hometown of Richmond, Virginia has recently been given the historical context. It's so sorely needed. In the form of tons of. Graffiti. Issued Special Order one ninety one during the Maryland campaign before the Battle of Antietam. In the order lead divided his army, delineating the routes and roads to be taken and the timing for the units to reconvene. Adjutant Robert H Chilton penned copies of the letter endorsed them in Lee's name. Staff. Officers distributed the copies to various confederate generals. General Thomas Stonewall Jackson in turn copied the document for one of his subordinates, major general, D H Hill who was to exercise independent command as the rearguard. A Union soldier Corporal Barton W Mitchell of the twenty seven. Th Indiana volunteers found two pieces of paper bundled with three cigars as he marched across a farm in Maryland an area recently vacated by Hill and his men after they had camped there. The order provided the Union army with valuable information, concerning the army of Northern Virginia's movements and campaign plans. Upon receiving lease lost order. Major General George McClellan leading the Union army of the Potomac proclaimed. Here is a piece of paper with which if I cannot whip Bob Ely, I will be willing to go home. He immediately moved his army in hopes of foiling lease battle plans. When Lee heard a copy of special order one, ninety, one was missing he. He knew his scattered army was vulnerable and rushed to reunite his units Antietam Creek near Sharp's Berg. Lee's troops arrived tired hungry and many were sick. The Battle of Antietam, would go down as the bloodiest battle of the American civil war with casualties recorded as twenty, three, thousand dead wounded, which was usually as good as dead or unaccounted for over the course of the half day battle. That's nearly two thousand soldiers in our one every two seconds. When night fell both sides ceased fire together, their dead and wounded. The next day Lee began the painstaking job of moving his ravage troops back Virginia. Here, some scholars argue another solitary decision had far reaching consequences. Despite having the advantage. McClellan. Allowed Lee to retreat without resistance. From his point of view, he'd accomplished his mission by forcing Lee's troops from Maryland and preventing confederate win on union soil. President, Lincoln however thought McClellan missed a great opportunity to potentially end the war three years earlier than it ultimately would.

As a person who was raised in a household with my mom and my dad, Raymond Boone and Jean Boone, who started the paper that I work for the Richmond free Press. Monuments have always been a part of our conversations since I was a child, growing up the early part of my life in Richmond that they were symbols of hate and symbols of white supremacy. So I've always looked at these statues as being quite evil on DH always heard in my household that they needed to come down. You have been out documenting these protests seeing this moment? Can you tell me about some of the people that you've been photographing and what you've experienced while you've been doing that Sure. I also just want to be clear that it's not just me photographing for our newspaper. I'm doing it along with my colleague Sandra Sellers who's been at the Richmond free press for more than 20 years, and what we see are people who are angry who are fed up wanting change right now. Seeing Children come out, and we love to photograph Children because we hope that when they see themselves whether it's on social media or in our newspaper that They see where they are in history.

Or is there a different lens that you look at this through? Because you are working for a black newspaper in the city and because you are a black woman? So, Yeah, I definitely think so. I think there is a responsibility that we have as black women document in this movement because you know, oftentimes. Our stories are told by other people. Other people who don't look like us.

Lee given direction about what to do and that runs completely contrary to Lee's philosophy of overall command which is bring the army to the battlefield but leave the actual execution of the battle in the hands of these corps commanders the three core of the confederacy are much larger than the union course so we'll use the same word but these are vast and their three divisions each on those are all important commanders as well the invasion starts very well because at brandy station on the ninth Stuart are leading the Confederate cavalry is successful in a running battle with Pleasanton of the union calorie and Dick you'll is successful at Winchester on the fourteenth let's concentrate first on Stewart what's wrong with Jeb Stuart what is the complaint after a hundred fifty years ships store it was deeply enamored of Jeb Stuart he was the very model of the dashing florid cavalry commander the problem was that he had a lot of the dash but he didn't have a lot of the common sense the cavalry commander had to have to use cavalry rightly in the American Civil War the cavalry forces are almost entirely light cavalry that's a distinction between the European armies with the European armies have different kinds of cavalry heavy cavalry which is useful on the battlefields were breaking up infantry formations Napoleon had his curiosity a Waterloo for instance then the run lancers and then there are light cavalry but in the American context there was no heavy cavalry only light cavalry used mainly for screening and four rating Stewart loves to rate well largely because I think it gives them an opportunity to show off dramatically but many people suspected that there wasn't a whole lot of substance there and the clash of brandy station tends to illustrate that because Stewart and the Confederate cavalry were caught completely napping by the union army's cavalry under Alfred Pleasonton the union cavalry had not distinguished itself terribly much during this war and brandy station is the first inkling that the balance is about to change and although the union cavalry eventually withdraws after the clash and brandy station the fact is he has caught just do it by surprise and Stewart has a royal is spread all over his face Winchester this is a garrison it passes back and forth I think I've read Winchester change can seventy times during the civil war so it just dependent on what army was coming down the road but you'll surprised and out maneuvered a garrison of union troops at Winchester did that give him confidence that he didn't deserve well it gave him certainly confidence but even more it gave the rest of the army confidence you'll executed that attack on Winchester entirely on his own hook and what's more he did it with such a drug us with such speed with such decisiveness he nearly bags the entire union garrison as it tried to flee from Winchester and that led people to conclude a Honda we really do have the second Stonewall Jackson among us and Winchester is the proof after all Jackson established his credentials as a great commander in the Shenandoah Valley around Winchester well it seems very appropriate then that Richard as you'll was going to do the same thing and the same monument would be erected by him at Winchester is it been rectified some objects all right the three Confederate core are now moving up towards Pennsylvania they're all different routes because the baggage trains are miles long and they need to use the limited roads you'll takes the lead Winchester then he pie passes Harpers ferry and crosses in it crosses the Potomac to in the eighteenth in the twenty second and the weather is hot and rainy is that is that correct professor the month of June July eighteen sixty three with some of the rainiest in the entire civil war it is rain rain and little bit more rain and then wet and how does that affect the army's as they're moving north is that a help to them to keep the dust down in the rivers up well it does provide some consolation in the people are not going through a baking hot Virginia summer on the roads much less up in the Maryland to Pennsylvania but it does make it an unpleasant flaws in a lot of ways it does slow maneuver down it probably slows the Union Army down more of them the Confederate army but even so it doesn't make that margin to Pennsylvania particularly pleasant ones hi Dick you'll crosses between the eighteenth and twenty second the others the other core will follow and they're moving into Pennsylvania there west of Gettysburg at this point in fact I'm five follow the map and the professor has many wonderful maps there the Lee Yule is taking the lead is heading to Chambersburg in fact there will be members of his out riders to get to the.

And you're saying it may be a touch point for a lot more questions that reveal other things. Dealing with just this. When you when you look it is not as if doing a bad thing is anyway, mitigated or fixed by how long ago, but different politicians of different ages have talked about growing in Evelyn in certain ways. How bad is it that one thousand nine hundred eighty four too many people does not seem like a time where that photo makes any sense, even though it would be bad in anytime. Yeah. I mean, this is not this is not ancient history. You know, a lot of us were actually alive at this point in the eighties. But you have to remember. And this is I think something that Americans tend to wanna forget, you know, in one thousand nine hundred three nine hundred eighty four the dukes of hazzard was still on had a car called the general Lee that kids were still playing with on the playground. So to a certain extent Northland's behavior really may not have been out of the mainstream for people in the military out of the mainstream for people of his aides at that time that doesn't mean it's appropriate. He can say he's learned his lesson. I don't know that the state of Virginia voters will be that forgiving and more importantly, it's only if this is a one time thing if this opens up a door to discussions about other behavior.
