  • I'm sorry I never got over there. I somehow think my dad doesn't like talking about it? I really don't care! He's my great great grandfather. General Lee deserves my reapect.
  • Beautiful, just beautiful! No words can be exchanged for the reverence I felt in this place. What bothered me most were the visitors who neither bothered to dof their hat or give the proper salute. Most that lie within gave their life so I can make this post in freedom, who gave liberty to the oppressed, who settled their account out of honor, valor and courage so many future generations could taste the freedoms so many come to this country to experience. Thank you!
