Words of Encouragement by welikeme23 Words of Encouragement by welikeme23
While walking to Belle Island in richmond i stumbled apon this plank on a bridge that read

"it is absolutely necessary that we should abandon our position tonight"
-General Lee
At first glance it doesn't look very encouraging
but I looked it up and the whole quote is this

"It is absolutely necessary that we should abandon our position tonight, or run the risk of being cut off in the morning. I have given all the orders to officers on both sides of the river, and have taken every precaution that I can to make the movement successful. It will be a difficult operation, but I hope not impracticable. Please give all orders that you find necessary in and about Richmond. The troops will all be directed to Amelia Court-House."

Not so much bad once you read the whole thing.

Just thought it was cool
