Birthday of Robert E. Lee

I would be amiss if I did not remind you that this is the birthday of Robert E. Lee. On February 18, 1874 while speaking at the Southern Historical Society in Atlanta, Georgia, Senator Benjamin Hill made the following statement about Lee.

"When the future historians shall come to survey the character of Lee, he will find it rising like a huge mountain above the undulating plains of humanity, and he must lift his eyes high toward heaven to catch its summit.

"He was a foe without hate, a friend without treachery, a soldier without cruelty, a victor without oppression, and a victim without murmuring.

"He was a public officer without vices, a private citizen without wrong, a neighbor without reproach, a Christian without hypocrisy and a man without guile.

"He was a Caesar without his ambition, a Frederick without his tyranny, a Napoleon without his selfishness and a Washington without his reward."


I am posting a couple of pictures of the interview with Kristen Fisher of Current Television. Also a reminder to listen to our Sunday morning church service broadcast live over Stormfront Radio. Go to,, at 12 PM Eastern Time and click on the red square box that says, LISTEN HERE!

I will be back on my blog on Tuesday.
