In the Post Civil War Era

no Southerner worked harder to rebuild the South and to mend the fences between the North and South.

He took the Presidency of Washington College and restored it to greatness; and today we have Washington & Lee in Lexington, Va.

He appeared before Congress; he met with President Grant's administration to determine steps which could be taken to resolve the former disagreements.

He had implemented a plan to free the slaves on his wife's plantation and return them, if they wished, to Africa.

He turned down repeated business opportunities which would have made he and his sons independantly wealthy.

He was the spirit and inspiration for Sigma Nu.

And he never marched over some long ago and mostly forgotten incident.
