LEE-JACKSON DAY OBSERVtu
BY THE BREVARDJUGH SCHOOL
L?e-Jackson Day was fittingly ob
served in the Brevard High school
Mohday morning, a most/ enjoyable
program being rendered by the
school, with members of the U. D. C.
as honor guests. Glen Miller read a
paper on Robert fi. Lee, and Paul
Black read the paper on Jackson.
These were the features of the pro
gram. Appropriate music added to
the occasion, Miss Call leading the
singing, while Alvin Moore was at
The program was opened with the
I s-inging of Dixie, after which Miss
Annie Gash made an interesting talk
on the meaning of Lee-Jackson Day.
She told of the time when, as a lit
tle girl, she looked daily upon a
group picture in which three men
were portrayed. In the center was
the picture of General Zebulon Vance,
and she loved him because of his
Ki-eat services to the state and na
lion, and because he wn3 a native
North Carolinian. One either side of
^;he picture were the portrait' of
rKobert E. Lee and Stonewall Javkson.
1 It was upon these that she looked
with reverence. She then told in elo
quent manner of the fine work of the
two men in behalf of their beloved
Southland, and it is to teach each
generation to hold in reverence the
memory of these great heroes that
Lee-Jafl^on Day is observed each
year. Miss Sherrill Bromfield presid
Papers were then read by Messsr.
Miller and Black, both of which are
herewith reproduced. I
Life of Gen. Robt. E. Lee
Born January 19, 1807 in West
moreland County, Va. He was the
son of "Light Horse Harry Lee" a
dashing cavalry leader of the Revolu
tion. Lee's family also furnished two
signers of the Declaration of Inde
pendence. He received his early ed
ucation in a private academy at Alex
andria. Lee's inherited military in
stinct* asserted themselves in his
eighteenth year and he secured an
appointment to West Point Military
Academy. He graduated in 1829,
second in a class of 46.
Lee served as chief engineer in
Washington for some time after his
graduation and later took charge of
the defences of New York Harbor,
tn 1840 Leo entered the Mexican war
and was promoted, because ?f his
brilliant services, from captain '
colonel. Gen. Winfield Scott predict
cd a bright future for ?A. Troiii
1862 to 1855 Lee served as superin
tendent of West- Point. During this
time he introduced some important
changes in the ruling of the school.
The year 1859 saw Lee command
ing the forces that defeated and cap
tured John Brown at Harper's fer
ry, In 1801 he became commander of
At the beginnng of the Civil War
Lincoln offered Lee the command of
the army of the United States, but
Lee answered, "Though opposed to
secession and depracated war, 1 can
take no part in an invasion of the
Southern States." He resigned his
commission and cast in his lot with
his native state and the South. First
as major-general of the Va. troops,
then as brigadier-general In the Con
federate army, and later as command
er-in-chief of all the Southern forces,
he thenceforth devoted his splendid
abilities throughout the war to the
cause he had so conscientiously es
During the war Lee checked Mc
CUllan's advance towards Richmond,
tin 11 with the aid of "Stonewall"
Jackson, defeated Pope at Bull's Run.
After this he crossed the Potomac in
an advance on Washington but was
checked. Lee and his men had fought
with great skill and bravery causing
the North to lose many more men and
supplies. The plan of the Union
A i-my to advance again upon Rich
mond was thwarted by Le?'i defeat of
Burniide at Fredericksburg, and of
Hooker at ChancellorBvllle. But his
subsequent invasion of Pa. failed, and
he wa3 forced to retreat to Va. after
the battle of Gettysburg.
Grant advanced on Richmond in
1SG4 with twice as many men as Lee
had against him, and also with much
better supplies nnd equipment. For
one year of continuous lighting Lee
hold the prize from Grant in the
face of these tremendous odds.
Finally' on April 9, Lee was forced
to surrender at Appomattox Court
Alter the war Lee accepted the
presidency of what is now Washing
ton and Lee University. He served
hue for about five years, but the
hardships of war caused his death
OH Oct. 12, 1870.
Physically, intellectually, and mor
ally Lee was a large and symetrical
man. He was modest, vigorous, keen
and selfpossessed. Pure and upright
in character, in manner he was sim
ple, dignified and courteous. His rul- j
ing characteristic was an inflexible !
devotion to duty as he saw it. Denied
the reward of victory for his cause, I
he retained the consciousness of hav- I
ing done his best, and received the I
idolizing affection of his army and
the South. "He was a foe without j
hate, a friend without treachery, a
soldier without cruelty and a victim
Thomas Jonathan Jackson, com
monly called Stonewall Jackson, was
born at Clarksville, W. Va., Jan. 21,
When he was only three years of '
age he was left a penniless orphun. '
hut he soon showed the stuff he was
made of. Hearing of an appointment !
to West Point vacant, he set out for
Washington. He arrived tired and
dusty with all his possessions in a
pair of saddle bags. The congressman
from his district admired his pluck so ,
much that he took him before the |
secretary of War. On hearing his
story the secretary immediately made .
out an appointment.
Jackson barely squeezed through
the examination. He advanced rap
idly however, and when he graduated
he was number seventeen in a class
nf hrlllinnt men. One of his i'Ihhk
matcs said that "Old Jack" would
have been at the head of the class il
!. i >?" ' hml another year to go
After his graduation he served in
Mexico where he was shortly made a
In 1851 he was fleeted professor of
natural science and instructor of mil
itary tactics in the Virginia Military
Institute. He never made a great
success of this but it was there that
ho began the custom of instructing
his servants in Scripture on Sunday
afternoons. Out of this custom grew
his famous Negro Sunday School to
which he contributed even after the
war had begun. That the Negroes
loved him is shown by the fact that
the Negro Baptist church of Lexing
ton made the first contribution to his
Jackson was a Union man but
when he heard that Mr. Lincoln had
a call for seventy-five thousand men
to fight the South he said, "I have
longed to preserve the Union and
would sacrifice much to that end. But i
now that the North has chosen to j
inaugurate war against us, I am in
favor of meeting her by drnwing th?
sword and throwing away the scab
He was given a commission in the
Confederate Army and did much to f
organize and train an army.
It was at the first Battle of Bull
Run that he received his new name.
General Lee saw his troops standing
fast and exclaimed, "there standB
Jackson like a stonewall.''
His most famous campaign, known
as the Valley Campaign" is still
studied by military students in Eu
During a flanking movement
against Hooker, Jackson went out on
a reconnoltering trip and as he re
turned, his own men fired on him by
mistake. His left arm was ampu
tated and he seemed alright for three
days, but pneumonia set in and he
died at a quarter past three p.m.

General Lee, on hearing that he
was wounded, wrote to him: "Could
I have dictated events I should have
chosen for the good of the country to
have been wounded In your stead.
