Robert E. Lee was born on January 19, 1807. His birthday passed almost unnoticed this year, although it is still an official holiday in many Southern states and was once observed more widely in the South.
Yet Lee is still one of the most revered military leaders in American history. In fact, Robert E. Lee remains one of the most studied and respected military commanders in world history, although he was ultimately on the losing side.
However, it was Lee’s character over and above his military fame that made him so revered among his soldiers and among the Southern people for many generations.
It is a sad commentary on our present culture to see such manly courage, godly wisdom, and devotion to duty lost to this and future generations.
