circa.1900. Original stereograph on tan board (7 x 3 1/2 inch) with title on the front cover. Image of some children playing in front of a monument with the Lee Mansion in the background. Lee's Mansion was seized in 1861 to serve as a graveyard for northern troops during the Civil War by Gen Montgomery Meigs, who hated southerners. Graves were placed up to the front door and in the Rose Garden. In 1882 George Lee, son of Robert E. Lee sued the federal government and won $150,000 for the mansion and 1,100 acres surrounding the mansion. During 1925 the mansion was restored and transferred to the National Park Service in 1933, though the cemetery stayed under the control of the US Army. Fine clean copy.
