Nathaniel H. Harris to Robert E. Lee, Letter, 6 June 1866
Having opposed secession before the war, Lee worked after 1865 to restore the Union by preaching submission to authority and promoting political harmony. His voice was heard throughout the South. General John T. Morgan of Alabama reported, "Eight millions of people turn their eyes to Lexington seeking instruction and paternal advice in the severe trials they have to undergo." General Harris of Mississippi wrote this eloquent letter.
