Robert E. Lee (1807-1870) was the leader of the Confederate Army
during the tragic days of the American Civil War (1861-1865). Following the
war, he was co-operative with the North on getting the country working
again, while still maintaining the South's stance on other issues. When Lee
died in Lexington in 1870, it proved difficult to get coffins into the area
because of recent heavy rains and muddy roads. In fact, the three coffins
ordered were washed away during the deluge. Shortly afterwards, when one
washed ashore, it was found by two boys, and Lee was buried in that. Because
it was too short for him, however, he had to be buried without shoes.

“There are people in the world so hungry, that God cannot appear to them except in the form of bread.”
― Mahatma Gandhi
