US 127

John Kiesewetter

Growing up in Middletown, I've known about the Robert E. Lee memorial in nearby Franklin for most of my life.

I've always found it curious that there would be a memorial to Lee, who led the Confederate Army into battle to destroy the United States of America, in the North.

And that the Robert E. Lee memorial also was there "to mark the route of the Dixie Highway."
