Lee's Chimney

Hello, Within the Charter of the Immortal Order of the Knights of the Golden Horseshoe, pertaining to Historical Preservation, this Saturday at dark, we are going to light a fire at the site of  General Robert E. Lee's Camp, along with the Army of Northern Virginia, including about 19,000 men, during the winter of 1863-64.  The stones are located at the site  and we are preparing a historical preservation and reconstruction of the chimney, platform and tent that Lee would have occupied during this winter period. We intend to pay our respect to the site it deserves.  After camping out with horses and catching and eating fish and lighting the fire that has not been lit in 137 years we will have a better knowledge of our approach to this project. tom sites
