Headed out to the area of the "Second Battle of Bull Run" right now for a little trigger time.

While this is a terrible picture, my daughter and I have lunch in Charlottesville's Lee Park fairly often. I like to take a few minutes and read parts of his biography to her while we sit there.

There are many places where I would disagree with both Lee and Jackson, but they were honorable men worthy of admiration and remembrance.

Two of the greatest Generals and men in American history!

For another view, check out Lee, Jackson and Davis on Stone Mountain at Stone Mountain, Georgia. All three of these southern patriots are carved into this large rock. Plan to spend the entire day to visit the car/ motorcycle/stuff museum, ride the train, catch the tram to the top of Stone Mt. and the best is the Laser Light show(if they still have it) that evening/night. As a side note, Stone Mt. Park has an Antebellum Plantation Southern Home and you haven't seen one.(in case y'all ain't from the south) I went there for the campground and stayed for the entertainment. The campground is a state park, so the price is reasonable and you can see Atlanta from the top of the Mt./rock .

I went there once when I was dating a girl from Tucker, Ga. It was really cool and the laser show was sweet.

I don't know, as much as I love Robert E. Lee, I think Longstreet was his equal as a tactician. I dearly wish General Lee had listened to General Longstreet at Gettysburg when he urged Lee to fight a defensive battle. Jackson of course was a prodigy.

But in any case, Happy B-Day Robert!
