Happy Birthday General! -

Happy Birthday to General Robert E. Lee! One of my heroes among men.

One of my very favorite stories of General Lee contains this quote:
"When he was informed that the chaplains prayed for him, tears started to his eyes, and he replied: "I sincerely thank you for that, and I can only say that I am a poor sinner, trusting in Christ alone, and that I need all the prayers you can offer for me."
~ (from Part 5, Chapt. 13) of "A life of Gen. Robert E. Lee" by John Esten Cooke ~
