Hello all.  I am new to this board and am looking forward to being an active member  of it.   In the back of Shaara's book, "The Last Full Measure", it is said that Lee purchased his horse Traveler for two hundred dollars.  I had always read and believed that the horse was a gift to Lee from a soldier in the 60th Virginia Infantry.  Supposedly Lee tried to buy the horse but the soldier would accept no payment.  Can anyone verify either story?  Thanks all.
