CSA Days of Commemoration

With the Sesquicentennial of the Civil War at hand I thought you might like a list of the birth dates of famous CSA figures (actually it was on the back of the JD punch recipe).

Sept 7 - John Pelham (called The Gallant Pelham)
Sept 10 - (Fighting) Joe Wheeler
Sept 17 - Franklin Buchanan
Sept 27 - Raphael Semmes
Jan 14 - Mathew Fontaine Maury
Jan 19 - Robert E. Lee
Jan 21 - Thomas J. (Stonewall) Jackson - my personal favorite
Feb 3 - Sidney Lanier (my collateral ancestor by marriage)
March 16 - Nocola Marschall  March 31 - John Herbert Kelly
April 26 - Confederate Memorial Day
June 3 - Jefferson Davis

Now I am sure there are many others that are omitted, but these are who were on "this list". If you have your own personal favorites, please make a comment.
