In the South, and especially in Virginia, it is common to celebrate Lee-Jackson Day (Civil War generals Robert E. Lee and Thomas “Stonewall” Jackson) because they were both born in January.
I decided to look up other great American heroes that were born this month and found quite a few. Did I miss any?
Martin Luther King
Looks like a nice list of people there. We like “Stonewall”, too. He was born in a section of Virginia that is now West Virginia.
