On November 3rd, 1816, Jubal Anderson Early was born in Franklin County, Virginia and was the third of ten children. Jubal Early was a cadet at the Military Academy at West Point, a Mexican-American War Veteran, and a General in the United States Civil War.
Earlier today, I had the oppurtunity to visit the Booker Taliaferro Washington Birthplace and National Monument in Franklin County, Virginia.
One of my relatives from my mother’s side of my family, which is directly related to Founding Father George Mason IV, married into the Roosevelt family before Theodore Roosevelt was born.
My relative Theodore Roosevelt invited Booker Taliaferro Washington for dinner, and was the first ever United States President to entertain a Black person in the White House.
It was indeed an honor to visit the birthplace of an American author, educator, orator, and advisor to multiple United States Presidents!
