Henry Lee III

On December 26, 1799, Henry Lee III famously eulogized George Washington as “first in war, first in peace and first in the hearts of his countrymen.” During the American Revolution, Lee served as a cavalry officer in the Continental Army and earned the nickname “Light-Horse Harry.” Did you know that he is the father of Robert E. Lee?
