181st Birthday tribute to General Gordon

Posted by Calvin E. Johnson Jr. on Feb 5, 2013 at 12:25 PM

"A more gallant, generous, and fearless gentlemen and soldier has not been seen in this country"

Stephen D. Lee, Commander-in-Chief, United Confederate Veterans, said of John B. Gordon:

“He was a devout and humble Christian Gentleman. I know of no man more beloved in the South, and he was probably the most popular Southern man among the people of the North.”

February is Black History Month. It is also the birthday month of George Washington, our first president. And it is the birthday month of John Brown Gordon of Georgia. John B. Gordon, born February 6, 1832, was an orator, lawyer, statesman, soldier, publisher and Governor of the state of Georgia. He is best known as one of General Robert E. Lee’s generals. At Appomattox, his corps’ encounter with the Union soldiers under Joshua Chamberlain is a classic story of respect.
