The officers and members of the 16th Regiment South Carolina Volunteers Sons of Confederate Veterans Camp 36 welcomed guests from as far away as Germany and Hungary to their annual Lee-Jackson Banquet.

Robert Edward Lee was born January 19, 1807, and Thomas “Stonewall” Jackson was born January 21, 1824.

The beloved General Lee, having been the Commandant at West Point, was offered command of the Union Army by the Lincoln Administration, declined and chose to defend Virginia instead. He survived the war, became a college president and led the former Confederacy in the healing process and return to the union.
