Whenever somebody points to Lee's views about secession stated clearly in his January 1861 letter to his son, the answer is "he wasn't a lawyer". So when the views of a tribunal of 9 lawyers are then pointed to, the answer is "they were wrong". There is indeed an "answer" for everything.I have no idea what you’re getting at. According to Lee secession is rebellion and “sending inadequate number of troops across a mile of open territory to assault a well fortified enemy position” is not suicide.
