"Governor, if I had forseen the use those people designed to make of their victory, there would have been no surrender at Appomattox Courthouse; no sir, not by me.  Had I forseen these results of subjugation, I would have preferred to die at Appomattox with my brave men, my sword in my right hand."

~ General Robert E. Lee to Governor Fletcher S. Stockdale, September 1870
