Virginia's Next Governor, Gen. free pdf Excerpt from Virginia's Next Governor, Gen.: Fitzhugh Lee "One of the few, the immortal names, That were not born to die." Gen. Fitzhugh Lee was born at Clermont, Fairfax County, Virginia, November 19, 1835, and is now in the fiftieth year of his age. His father was Capt. Sydney Smith Lee, who left the United States Navy at the breaking out of the war and joined the Confederate Navy. Gen. Lee is a grandson of Gen. Henry Lee, or "Light-Horse Harry," and a nephew of the late Gen. Robert E. Lee. The mother of Gen. Lee was a granddaughter of George Mason and a sister of James M. Mason, who for many years represented Virginia in the United States Senate, and was Minister from the Confederacy in England during war. We know but little of Gen. Fitzhugh Lee's boyhood days, save that he is spoken of by old neighbors and friends as a bright, manly boy, full of fun, and fonder of the play-ground than of his books. At the age of sixteen he was appointed a cadet at West Point, where he graduated in 1856, and having graduated at the head of his class in horsemanship, he was commissioned Second-Lieutenant in the famous old Second Cavalry (now the Fifth), of which Albert Sidney Johnston was Colonel, R. E. Lee, Lieutenant-Colonel, and Wm. J. Hardee and George H. Thomas, Majors. Among the Captains were Earl Van Dorn, E. Kirby Smith, Innis M. Palmer and George Stoneman, and among the Lieutenants were Nathan G. Evans, Richard W. Johnson, Charles W. Field, Geo. B. Cosby, William W. Lowe, John B. Hood and Fitzhugh Lee, all of whom rose to high rank in either the Confederate or the Federal armies. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
