Regarding “Letters from Gettysburg,” Dorman writes, “Most of the text for this work comes from letters written by 1st Lieutenant Rush P. Cady – Co. K, 97th New York Infantry, who was fatally wounded during the Battle of Gettysburg and died a few days later. The first and last movements are based on a letter written by his mother at his death bed.”

Tue 16 7:30 PM Living History An Evening with Mr. & Mrs. Robert E Lee Arlington House Impressions, Gen. Robert E. Lee and Mary Anna Randolph Custis Lee presented by Frank and Bonnie Orlando, civil War Living Historians, Gettysburg, PA

After the War Between the States, whenever Robert E. Lee was questioned, frequently by his former comrades-in-arms in the United States Army, as to the reason he rejected command of the United States Aremy when it was offered to him by Francis Blair, acting on behalf of Abraham Lincoln, Lee always answered in the same, consistent manner by answering "that his rejection was predicated upon two of the most sublime, if not the most sublime, words in the English language: duty and honor.
Battlefield Bed and Breakfast

2264 Emmitsburg Road
Gettysburg, PA 17325

Please call 717 334-8804 for reservations.

 

A parlor chat with the Lees. $15 tickets. I can only do what my duty demands. I can never do more. I can never desire to do less. I can take no other course without dishonor." This simple response is what Frank Orlando, Civil War living historian, utilizes as the basis for the vast majority of his presentations to leadership groups, school groups, veterans and community organizations, reenactment and encampment activities, group tours, "meet and greets" at large hotel complexes, etd., as those two words embody all that is good about Robert E. Lee.

Unlike the vast majority of media created heroes that exist today, Robert E. Lee does not have a hint of scandal that has to be hidden from the public eye. The facts of his life may be recounted without modification. Theordore Roosevelt characterized Lee this way:"the very greatest of all the great captains that the English-speaking peoples have brought forth." Robert E. Lee is also venerated in Europe as evidenced by Winston Churchill who said of Lee:"One of the noblest Americans who ever lived." With these throughts in mind, Orlando and his wife Bonnie have succeeded in bringing Gen. and Mrs. Robert E. Lee to life in the 21st Century. By gleaning quotations from the thousands of letters that the Lees not only set back and forth to one another, but also the correspondence these two people sent friends and diverse other relatives, the Orlandos succeed in telling the Lees' story through the Lees' own words.
