Mort Kunstler's Civil War Calendar for August 2015-- Part 2

The text:  'LEE, JACKSON AND DAVIS, JULY 13, 1862.  It was a meeting like no other.  Following the 1862 Seven Days Campaign, Generals Robert E. Lee and Stonewall Jackson met with President Davis at Richmond's Confederate White House--  where five-year-old Jefferson Davis, Jr., sometimes slipped into official meetings.

"Within a year, Jackson would be mortally wounded, Lee would be defeated at Gettysburg, and Davis would face a failing Confederacy.

"This would be the only White House strategy session by the South's three principal commanders."

So, It Was Junior Looking In.  --Old Secesh
