Event Description:

Lee-Jackson Day is a celebration of the lives of two great heroes and most noteworthy citizens of Lexington, Virginia.  Robert E. Lee and Thomas J. 'Stonewall' Jackson were both born near this date which became a longstanding state holiday across the South.  While neither man was born here, both spent the final years of their lives as residents of Lexington.  Stonewall Jackson arrived here prior to the War Between the States and became an integral part of the community as a church leader and professor at the Virginia Military Institute.  Robert E. Lee arrived in Lexington following the war and rescued a destitute college that was later renamed Washington and Lee in his honor.  Both men are buried here which makes the town a fitting venue to commemorate their lives.  We welcome you to join us as we honor not only their military genius, but their personal lives, faith, and character.  We also encourage you to walk the streets and explore the town upon which both men left their permanent mark and legacy.

Lee Chapel

LEE CHAPEL

Washington & Lee's administration now considers honoring Robert E. Lee in Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day to be an improper use of a building built under the administration of Robert E. Lee which is also his gravesite and the home of the Lee Memorial.  As Donald Trump recently said, Political Correctness has ruined our country.  Robert E. Lee while a humble man who would not want such a fuss about himself whether he deserves it or not.  The general would no doubt be ashamed of the university's rejection of nearly all traditional values and its succumbing to marxist mob rule.
