4th and 5th Graders from Emerald Mountain Elementary School

Montgomery’s historic First White House of the Confederacy was packed with visitors on Tuesday, January 19th in honor or General Robert E. Lee’s 209th birthday. The event also marked the introduction of Seibels Lanier Marshall as the new Regent at the First White House. She replaces Anne Tidmore who served untiringly in that position for a number of years.

She expressed many thanks to Anne for her outstanding dedication to the First White House and its preservation. The guest speaker at the event was Bill Rambo, dressed in his period uniform, who introduced the audience to a bit of the General’s background, in particular the horses General Lee rode before, during, and after the War Between the States.
