Sir Winston Churchill once remarked, “Lee was the noblest American who had ever lived and one of the greatest commanders known to the annals of war.”

Dear students, teachers, parents, church, community leaders, historians and folks everywhere, January is the birthday month of War Between the States Generals; James Longstreet born on January 8, 1821, Thomas Jonathan ‘Stonewall’ Jackson born on January 21, 1824, George Pickett born on January 28, 1825 and Thursday, January 19, 2012, is the 205th birthday of General Robert E. Lee, whose memory is still dear in the hearts of people everywhere.

Many events are planned around the nation that include….

Lee Birthday Celebration in Milledgeville, Georgia on Saturday, January 21, 2012, in the Old Legislative Chambers of the Old State Capitol Building at 11 AM.

    Now those were men! They DESERVE to be honored. I never knew Mr. Lee was, stripped of his citizenship?

    • Yes, he was stripped of his citizenship as were thousands of Confederates who held positions in the government or served in the military above the rank of captain (I think–it may have been lieutenant). They had to petition for the restoration of their citizenship status directly to the president (beginning with Andrew Johnson). Jefferson Davis’s citizenship has yet to be restored.
