The most beloved of all American Generals of all-time-General Robert Edward Lee, was born on this date back in 1807. HAPPY BIRTHDAY Sir. Lees birthday is also known in the South as: Confederate Heroes Day--which I try to celebrate every year. Robert E. Lee's Father: was General "Light-horse" Harry Lee and was a legendary soldier in our Revolutionary War. Both men were natives to and wholeheartedly loved, their State of Virginia. Rest in Peace Sirs, you both have my fullest respect. If you want more great Civil War info? go to: www.sonofthesouth.net I forgot till looking at the site more-that I too collect Harpers Weekly cover pages. I still have four of them but all pertain only to the Franco-Prussian War. I need to get back into collecting those as well while they are still relatively affordable.
