Stephen Ramseur in Southern VictoryEdit

As veterans of the War of Secession, 86-year-old Patrick Cleburne and 77-year-old Stephen Ramseur were invited to appear on the platform next to President Woodrow Wilson in August 1914 when Wilson announced the Confederate States were entering the Great War.

Both men were wearing the old-style gray uniform; Reggie Bartlett concluded that such aging lions could wear whatever they pleased.[1]
