Travel Tips for Lexington

VMI FACULTY

by mtncorg

While VMI’s most famous instructor was Stonewall Jackson, it is obvious to me, as a result of my visit to VMI, that their long history of brilliant and motivated faculty goes on. “Evidence?” you ask. This car parked in the instructor area marked to allegiances to both VMI and the Harvard of the West, Oregon State University, should be evidence enough. As the license plate infers, “GO BEAVS”

JACKSON MEMORIAL CEMETERY - PENDLETON FAMILY

by mtncorg

William Nelson Pendleton was the Episcopal clergyman for Lexington for some 28 years. He also served as Robert Lee’s Chief of Artillery, a position which he was not well suited for. He was present with Lee at the end at Appomattox and would preside at Lee’s funeral, some five years later. Nearby, his wife and son, LTC A.S. “Sandie” Pendleton lie. Sandie served as one of Stonewall Jackson’s main staff officers, a man whom Jackson trusted implicitly. Surviving his chief’s death in 1863, he was killed a year later, only six days short of his twenty-fourth birthday.

George C. Marshall Museum

by 807Wheaton

At the suggestion of President Truman, the Marshall Foundation was founded in 1953. The building was dedicated in 1964 by President Johnson and Eisenhower to honor the memory of George C. Marshall, VMI graduating class of 1901. After resigning as Army Chief of Staff in 1945, Marshall developed The Marshall Plan, the economic rebuilding of Europe following WWII. Marshall continued serving his country with a political and diplomatic career as Secretary of State and Defense and winner of the Nobel Peace Prize.

WASHINGTON & LEE UNIVERSITY

by mtncorg

Originally the school was founded in 1749 as the Liberty Academy, but was renamed after a generous grant was given to the school by one, George Washington. The new name became Washington College. That name change and a statue of the First Father of the Nation, himself, enabled the school to not have to share the same fate as its neighbor, VMI, in 1864 when occupying Federal troops put that school to the torch. It was to this school that Robert E Lee retreated to after his four years of war came to an end at Appomattox. He spent the rest of his life rebuilding the college in the War’s aftermath with only 40 students attending when he arrived. There were 400 by the time of his death in 1870. In honor of his efforts, the school was renamed once again as Washington & Lee, a name it has kept to this day. The school seems to be quite the quintessential Southern private coeducational university today and stands as quite a contrast to its neighbor, VMI, on its northern side.

WASHINGTON & LEE - TRAVELLER’S GRAVE

by mtncorg

Traveller was the best known of Lee’s wartime horses. After the many journeys they shared during the Civil War, Lee let Traveller roam the college lawns in retirement. The horse only survived Lee by seven months. His bones were on display in the museum until the horse was finally allowed to rest, here in this grave by the side of the Lee Chapel, in 1971.
