Traveling God's Country travel blog


There were many historical sites to see but the one that AAA said was the "GEM" is the Lee Chapel and we are glad we did. We found out some interesting facts. Robert E Lee and George Washington were related through a marriage in the families. Lee and Washington believe in education thus the colleg. Lee went to speciality built chapel everyday but the service was over in 15 minutes. Lee also wanted education for everyone but not too much for some people. When women had a higher educational building built for them, that was not liked by the men at all at the university. Lee's values were he wanted to raise up moral and Christian young men. Where did that go to!! He felt he was like the parent at his college. There is a marble statue of him in the chapel, however in a sleeping position. That is the way Mrs. Lee wanted it sculptured. It was beautiful all made out of one piece of scupture.

After our tour we headed for Gettysburg, PA. We plan on staying there three days, since we are getting there later evening but before dark. That will give us two full days to capture all that went on there.
