The Nathanael Greene family cemetery on Cumberland Island where Light Horse Harry Lee, Washington's finest cavalry officer, was buried when Robert E. Lee, his youngest son, was still a small boy.
Out Of The Ruins

Ben Reese musing:
"...It's interesting, to me at least, that Robert E. Lee would've stood right here. In a gray uniform the first time. Before he had the Army of Northern Virginia. When he was still called 'Granny Lee' by the dim, the dull and the demented.

The next time...he knew he was dying and wore himself out coming back. Largely because of the crowds on the way that wouldn't leave him alone.

Celebrity being what it is.

Hard on the body.

Bad for the soul.

Nothing I'd want to live through."
