Date of Birth

Many have asked for Robert E. Lee's exact date of birth, so we present it here for your enjoyment.

Robert E. Lee was Born on:

January 19, 1807

Robert E. Lee's Birthday was celebrated in the South during the Civil war.  Even today in the South, the day that Robert E. Lee was born is celebrated as "Robert E. Lee" day.  It is a Southern Holiday in some areas.  It is interesting that in some years his birthdate occurs on the day we celebrate Martin Luther King day.  This might sound odd at first, but if you study this site you will find a great deal in common between these two men. So, now you know the history behind the South's Robert E. Lee day.
