Before lecturing readers about Balkan history one really ought to be
able to remember well known facts about the history of one's own country.
Robert E. Lee was against secession--so much so that Lincoln offered
him command of the Union armies.  Once secession became an accomplished
fact Lee, for better or worse, instead chose loyalty to his native 
land, Virginia.
