Happy Robert E Lee Day! 

  
Celebrate the original southern gentleman with this great holiday/pallet cleanser from the 3 day weekend of communism that just passed us by 😆

Robert E Lee was born on January 19th, 1807. He married the granddaughter of Martha and George Washington and together they had 7 children! 

Robert E Lee was offered the position of the head of the Union Army first, however he told President Lincoln, “No, thank you.” and instead lead the Confederate Army which his home state of Virgina was a part of. 
Though the Confederate Army eventually lost the war, Lee commanded what is known as the greatest battle victory during the Civil War when he defeated the Union army at the Battle of Chancellorsville in May of 1863.
