Robert E. Lee realized in September 1862 the South could not win the war. He recommended that President Jefferson Davis send a peace proposal to the North. Davis refused. In May 1863 Lee again proposed to proclaim peace, probably with an armistice, taking his army into the North for the 4th of July to the town where the Continental Congress had forged the first American Constitution in 1777 while General Washington was at Valley Forge. The accidental battle at Gettysburg interfered with Lee’s “wisest, grandest, most imposing” plan. The South went down to final defeat in less than two years.
