The source of the quote seemed reliable, but I was still cautious.  I also found this:

So far from engaging in a war to perpetuate slavery, I am rejoiced that Slavery is abolished.  I believe it will be greatly for the interest of the South. So fully am I satisfied of this that I would have cheerfully lost all that I have lost by the war, and have suffered all that I have suffered to have this object attained.


General Robert E. Lee, May 1, 1870
