Robert E. Lee Tulip Popular
Camp Melton Historic Preserve
Robert Edward Lee (1807-1870) was a brilliant military genius was probably the greatest single factor in keeping the confederacy alive through the four years of the Civil War. After the war’s end, Lee refused to express bitterness. “Abandon your animosities,” he said, “and make your son Americans.” Lee’s Virginia ancestral home, Stratford Hall, is where a towering Tulip Poplar tree stands. This tree grew from a seed handpicked from the Robert E. lee Tulip Poplar.
