On this day in 1870, Robert E. Lee died in Lexington, Virginia about 5 and ½ years after this photograph was taken by M.B. Brady cameramen on the back porch of Lee’s Richmond home (April 16, 1865). Lee posed with his son George Washington Custis Lee (left) and Walter Taylor.

Lee’s reported last words were, “Tell Hill he must come up!” “Strike the tent!” Yet, his daughter at the bedside recalled only “struggling” with “long, hard breathes,” and “in a moment he was dead.”

?? “General [Oliver] Howard exposed his person recklessly during the battle, and came sufficiently near to being a one-legged, as he is already a one-armed veteran. A ragged piece of shell contused his foot severely while he was riding coolly outside the skirmish line, and another piece slightly bruised his forehead.

The General’s remark that he has already made sufficient sacrifices to the rebels, and must, therefore, be entitled to immunity at their hands, would weight lightly with the bloody-minded traitors, if any opportunity against him should be presented, and will lack much of dispelling the anxiety of his friends!”

– Northern “Correspondence” Record
Dallas, Georgia
May 28, 1864

> Howard survived the painful wound and half-jokingly made the remark above

From: “The Rebellion Record: A Diary of American Events, with Documents …, Volume 11”
