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 piano. 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 ed. 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 his regiment. 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 poused. 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 house. 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 without murmuring.'1 "Stonewalt" Jachxon Thomas Jonathan Jackson, com monly called Stonewall Jackson, was born at Clarksville, W. Va., Jan. 21, 1824. 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 major. 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 monument. 1 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 bard." 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 rope. 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. May H), 1868. 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. SILVER TEA FRIDAY AT M.
