1883 Robert E. Lee Memorial Association Souvenir Program Compliments of the Shenandoah Valley Route Railroad, here is an attractive foldover souvenir program from June 28, 1883. The Lee Memorial Association was unveiling the Recumbent Figure memorial sculpture of Lee by Edward Valentine at Lexington, Virginia. The Programme schedules the Decoration of the Graves of Lee and Jackson at 9:30 a.m.; Religious Services at 11:00 a.m.; and a Salute by Section of Rockbridge Artillery at 2:00 p.m. Lee himself had requested the construction of the Lee Chapel while he was president of what was then Washington College and is now Washington and Lee University. Lee died in 1870 and his remains were moved there to the family crypt in 1883. The Lee Chapel was named a National Historic Landmark in 1961. Folded size 4.75" x 6.5", condition is very good with expected light foxing and weakness at the folds. A great item with appeal to collectors of Railroad, Civil War and Washington and Lee memorabilia.
