No, he fled because he was an unreconstructed rebel: “I have come into exile rather than submit to the yoke of the oppressors of my country…could my life secure the redemption of that country, as it has been often risked, so now it would be as freely given for that object” (Early 1867).  

I respect your opinion.  Keep in mind he was against secession. And once again, not knowing what was going to happen would even cause you and me to haul *** to some place.  He was a standup American before the war and a standup American after the war.
It don't get no better than that. That can't be denied.

Perhaps you know enough about General Early to answer the question, '
What did Early write that was wrong?'?
