General ROBERT E. LEE death mask. I don't mean for this to sound horrid or anything but I was thinking, & wondering why people are not putting death masks on tomb stones. I like to see pictures of the person, and read a little bit about them.

Motivational Quote by Robert E. Lee

Motivational Quote by Robert E. Lee

Robert E. Lee (Confederate). By being the best general, he made it last way longer than it really should have done by winning a series of unlikely victories. In return, the Union turned his front garden in Arlington into a huge war cemetery.

When asked the question, "What race of people do you believe make the best soldiers?"  His reply:  "The Scots who came to this country by way of Ireland.  Because they have all the dash of the Irish in taking up a position and all the stubborness of the Scots in holding it." (Gen. Robert E. Lee)
