    Lee’s childhood home used to be a museum in Alexandria – some years ago the owners, IIRC, of Stonewall’s house in Lexington, sold it to some DC yuppies. http://www.nytimes.com/2000/03/12/us/robert-e-lee-s-childhood-home-is-sold.html
    A shame since it provided an fascinating contrast with Stratford House!
