I read somewhere that Gen. Grant was an alcoholic. This was the most salient feature mentioned. As for Gen. Lee, in the book of Dale Carnegie, titled: "How To Make Friends And Influence People", Carnegie writes that after the death of the assassinated President Lincoln, a letter was found in his desk drawer, a letter he never sent. In that letter, addressed to Gen. Lee, Lincoln reproached Lee for allowing the South's armies, after beating them in battle, to escape to the other side of a river. Lincoln said: "Now that you allowed them to escape, the war will go on for a long time." Now, what a genius was that Lee, to allow the enemy to escape, instead of destroying it? Carnegie in his book said: "Maybe Lee was tired of seeing so much blood flowing..." Well, I guess Lee was not a dummy or a sensitive soul. He was an agent of those bankers who in fact financed both sides of the Civil War - those bankers wanted the war to go on, and they profited from it. Because this way they drove Lincoln into deep debt, and, as Lincoln was unable to pay his soldiers, those international bankers blackmailed him into passing a bill, allowing those foreign bankers to print the American money and lend it at an interest to the Government. Cornered, Lincoln had the bill passed and so he got a loan of 250M US$ to pay his soldiers. (The bankers could decide, in other occasions as well, who should win wars, by just withholding financing from one side.) Lincoln was known to be planning to revoke the bill, and then, according to many books, the bankers sent an agent, a "lone killer" (Wilkes Booth) to remove Lincoln. Booth escaped and was helped by the bankers to go to England. I guess Lee was a tool in the plot, which gave control of the American money to an international banking group, called "Federal Reserve."
