Day One:
Stratford Hall-This birthplace of Robert E. Lee was once the largest home in the colonies and it still is one of the most elegant appearing. Lee lived here until four years old, but he always wanted to own it.

Fredericksburg National Battlefield-Lee, Stonewall Jackson and James Longstreet stopped Union General Ambrose Burnside here in December 1862. Tour includes stops along Mayre's Heights and Jackson 's trench line and Lee's battlefield headquarters where he was almost killed.

Chancellorsville-Scene of Lee's greatest triumph and Jackson 's mortal wounding. Stops would include the spot where Lee and Jackson last met, a short walk down the same road where Jackson's 28,000-man corps left for his famous flanking movement, and the spot where Jackson was wounded.

Day Two:
Manassas, Virginia-Jackson was pivotal in both battles here, First Manassas in July 1861 and Second Manassas in August 1862. Stops include the spot where Jackson won his famous nickname, and the spots where Jackson won both battles.

Brandy Station-Scene of the largest cavalry battle ever on the American continent. Pass by where more than 20,000 Confederates and Federals fought from horses and where the Gettysburg campaign began.

Cedar Mountain-See the site of the battle Jackson almost lost and where he had to personally rally his troops by waving a sword and a flag in each hand. This Confederate victory led to a Union mistake that almost cost them the war.

Day Three:

Lexington, Virginia-Here are two museums (Virginia Military Institute and Washington & Lee), plus the final resting spots of both Lee and Jackson. Take a walking tour of downtown Lexington and see the same buildings Lee and Jackson would have seen during their years here from 1851-1870.

Jean Wells Presents Seth Martin in Iceland

JWT introduces Seth Martin in Reykjavik, Iceland.  When he came to my office and we started talking about Iceland, he said he wanted to go to this country by himself as he knew exactly what he wanted to do, and indeed he did.  With a flight from RDU, and car rental upon arrival, he began to explore this beautiful country and did all the things he wanted to do.

Click on the "Journeys" tab and read his commentary; enjoy his pictures, and you will feel as if you were in Iceland enjoying it all. Thanks, Seth, for sending this to me.

Warmest regards,
Jean
