The Society of the Cincinnati will be visiting Stratford this week. Henry "Light Horse Harry" Lee III, the youngest officer in the Revolution to receive a gold medal from Congress, was one of the founding members of the society. Lee later was Governor of Virginia and a member of Congress when the U. S. Constitution was being deliberated. He wrote on June 2,1788:

The people of America, sir, are one people. I love the people of the north, not because they have adopted the constitution, but because I fought with them as my countrymen, and because I consider them as such. Does it follow from hence that I have forgotten my attachment to my native state? In all local matters I shall be a Virginian. In those of general nature, I shall not forget that I am an American.”

This Day in Robert E. Lee History: 1863 May 2.

Lee was on the verge of what was arguably his greatest victory of the Civil War at Chancellorsville. Yet, on the first day of heavy fighting, he wrote to Jefferson Davis to say:

"If I had with me all my command, and could keep it supplied with provisions and forage, I should feel easy, but, as far as I can judge, the advantage of numbers and position is greatly in favor of the enemy."
