A pro-Lee disciple of Freeman’s, Clifford Dowdey, was harder on Grant than Freeman was. In his Lee’s Last Campaign: The Story of Lee and His Men Against Grant, Dowdey described Grant as a “boring-in type of attacker, who usually scorned finesse.” The anti- Grant tradition is not dead.

Lee was a traditional soldier who had a gift for leadership and was an inspiration for his subordinates. Lee was always mindful of Grant's compassion and lenient terms of surrender. For the rest of his life, he would not tolerate anyone criticizing Grant in his presence.
