As I said yesterday, today is Robert E. Lee’s 204th birthday! We celebrated at the First White House of the Confederacy this morning with a speech by Commander Bill Rambo, Director of the Confederate Memorial Park in Marbury, Alabama. He was eloquent and very impressive in his Confederate Uniform. Thank you Commander, we appreciate your message!

We should have pictures on our website and on our facebook page by tomorrow and invite you to take a look. Our website is You can get to the facebook page from the website.

We had a big crowd and enjoyed three kinds of homemade (from scratch) birthday cakes, apricot, chocolate (death by chocolate) and pound. A good time was had by all. Thanks to everyone who came out to support us, and we were especially glad to have many first-time visitors!!!
