I've read a few books on Robert E Lee , Now from what I read he never owned a place of his own or purchased a place .Arlington was his wifes family's homeplace . Yes Happy Birthday Robert E Lee . My wifes birthday is today as well she is a twin she and her twin both where named after this man ,Linda Lee and Harold Edward . Again this I only what I have read in the past please correct me if I'm wrong.
Bulge, I sat on a bench on the porch, where the person in the big hat is standing. The house was closed that day and no one there. The house is on top of a high ridge that overlooks all of DC. The value of that property today would be astronomical. I think he had 1800 acres. The columns are sandstone.
Lee had sons in the Confederate army. I think he didn't want to be fighting against his sons in battle. Try to imagine that. If he had stayed with the Union, the war may not have amounted to much.
