New Flagpole Garden
Hey, look us over! We're pleased to extend appreciation to Peter Caceci of Scout Troop 512 for his work designing the new garden. As his Eagle Scout project, many hours were spent researching, planning, and planting for our enjoyment. Thanks also for suggestions from the members of The Garden Club of Springfield. Peter's garden surrounds and compliments their 75th Anniversary Garden in the center of the plot.

Clouds of Glory: The Life and Legend of Robert E. Lee
by Michael Korda
In Clouds of Glory: The Life and Legend of Robert E. Lee, Michael Korda, the New York Times bestselling biographer of Dwight D. Eisenhower, Ulysses S. Grant, and T.E. Lawrence, has written the first major biography of Lee in nearly twenty years, bringing to life America's greatest and most iconic hero. Korda paints a vivid and admiring portrait of Lee as a general and a devoted family man who, though he disliked slavery and was not in favor of secession, turned town command of the union army in 1861 because he could not "draw his sword" against his own children, his neighbors, and his beloved Virginia. He was surely America's preeminent military leader, as calm, dignified, and commanding a presence in defeat as he was in victory. Lee's reputation has only grown in the 150 years since the Civil War, and Korda covers in groundbreaking detail all of Lee's battles and traces the making of a great man's undeniable reputation on both sides of the Mason-Dixon Line, positioning him finally as the symbolic martyr-hero of the Southern Cause.
