Lee-Jackson Day is a state holiday in Virginia, celebrating the birthdays of Robert E. Lee and Thomas J. "Stonewall" Jackson. The holiday is observed on 2nd Friday in January.
“Marse Robert” is one of the endearing nicknames by which General Robert E. Lee was called by his men. This book is the account of Robert Stiles’ experience as a soldier during the Civil War. He traces his own story, giving personal significance to the battles fought and the time he spent under General Lee’s command.
In 1869, Everett B. D. Julio painted this scene of the Civil War generals and their horses. It depicts their meeting on May 1, 1863, just before the tragic death of Jackson. The painting now hangs in the Museum of the Confederacy. Print.
Gen. Robert E. Lee, 1807-70, was renowned for his brilliant leadership during the Civil War; however, his genius extended far beyond the battlefield. All his life, he relied upon his faith for strength and guidance not only in troubled times, but also as the foundation upon which he based all of his dealings with others.
Robert E. Lee was an embodiment of the Old South. The admired commander of the Confederate Army of Northern Virginia was respected by his troops as well as his enemies. From his childhood through his years at West Point until his death, Lee lived his life by a code of honor. He relied on this code during many difficult decisions, including his commitment to join the Confederacy rather than the Union.
Compiled here are 125 examples of the width and breadth of Lee’s humor, dating from his youth to his last working day as president of Washington College. Also noted are some of the less-frequently published points about the Lee family, including wife Mary’s concern over the “depth and sincerity” of Lee’s faith, their family connection to Napoleon, and stories of Lee’s father during the War of 1812.
Serving as a perfect companion to his first compilation, Robert E. Lee’s Lighter Side, this collection includes letters, diary excerpts, and touching stories from Lee himself, as well as his wife, children, students, and strangers who recorded his acts of kindness. This is not a book about Lee’s sentimentality or weakness, but serves instead to offer surprising glimpses at his more merciful side.
Shedding new light on a legendary war hero, this picture book profiles the religious devotion of Civil War general Thomas J. Jackson. A professor at the Virginia Military Institute, Jackson broke state law by teaching reading and writing to black citizens attending Lexington Presbyterian Church’s Sunday school. He continued his classes even after being threatened with prosecution, because he wanted his students to become better men and women through education.
A man of complex dichotomy, Gen. Robert E. Lee, leader of the Confederate States Army, was also a devout Christian, devoted husband, and father of seven. Lee’s opinions on life, family and children, women, politics, Yankees, and war are collected here, many taken from his personal letters. Paperback.
