Lee/Jackson birthdays

Celebrate the birthdays of two Civil War generals and honor the thousands of Confederate soldiers who served Saturday at the Lee/Jackson Monument downtown. Thomas "Stonewall" Jackson was born Jan. 21, 1824, and served as Confederate general during the Civil War along with the commander-in-chief of the Confederate Army, Robert E. Lee, born Jan. 19, 1807. In tribute, wreaths will be laid at the monument, a march of Confederate and Federal re-enactment troops will proceed through the street, and period music will create the mood. Area hereditary organizations, including representatives from the United Daughters of the Confederacy, Sons of Confederate Veterans and the Military Order of the Stars and Bars, will pay homage to the two historic figures. The ceremony begins at 11 a.m. Saturday at the Lee/Jackson Monument at Art Museum and Wyman Park drives. Free admission. Free parking on the Johns Hopkins University campus. Call 410-296-9235 or 410-747-3271.
