Default The ROBT. E. LEE Chandeliers

Last week while I was visiting the First Presbyterian Church at Port Gibson, Mississippi, I took these updated photos of the three chandeliers that once hung in the cabin of the Str. ROBT. E. LEE, built at my hometown of New Albany, Indiana in 1866 and famous for her 1870 race with the NATCHEZ. The church is open daily for visitors, so if you happen to be passing through the town that General Grant declared "too beautiful to burn", stop in and take a look!
