This reminds me of one of my favorite Civil War stories (USA civil war of
1861-1865). Two old Confederate (C.S.A., Southern) veterans of that war
were talking about the old days on the porch of their old soldiers home in
Louisana. One ran on at some length about the virtues of Robert E. Lee,
widely held to be the foremost Confederate general in that war. After a
while the other man leaned back in his rocking chair and drawled: "Oh, yes
-- General Lee. General Beauregard used to speak very highly of him."
