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?

Paul Revere
Betsy Ross
Martin Luther King
Ethan Allen
Daniel Webster
Benjamin Franklin
John Hancock
Alexander Hamilton
George Pickett
Thomas Paine
