Historical Information

On Christmas day of 1862, General Robert E. Lee, commander of the Army of Northern Virginia, attended a holiday dinner hosted by his valued "right arm" - Gen. Thomas J. "Stonewall" Jackson at an outbuilding at Moss Neck, where Jackson had established winter headquarters near Fredericksburg, Virginia. After dinner, Lee left the warm environment of General Jackson's hospitality to return to his headquarters and matters of war. He passed some guests that were arriving for a holiday party at the manor house and was momentarily refreshed by the events of the day and the warm wishes of "Merry Christmas, General Lee."
