It was a question of maturity, they achieved it. Now it is delayed indefinitely.
Good Morning Sir....I realized that I didn't recognize the Henry Lee III so I researched
that youngster on Google:
Major-General Henry "Light-Horse Harry" Lee III (January 29, 1756 – March 25, 1818) was an early American Patriot and politician who served as the ninth Governor of Virginia and as the Virginia Representative to the United States Congress. Lee's service during the American Revolution as a cavalry officer in the Continental Army earned him the nickname by which he is best known, "Light-Horse Harry".[note 1] Lee was the father of Civil War-era Confederate general Robert E. Lee.
And Aaron Burr later mortally wounded Alexander Hamilton in a duel, supposedly over an insult to a lady. They had significant political differences.
Light Horse Harry. Patriot. Politician. NOT a businessman. Lost the family fortune in a bunch of bad investments. So when his (now poor, living on Army pay) son Bobby wanted to marry Martha (the granddaughter, or great-granddaughter - depends on how you look at it - of George Washington) her daddy told her, "No! He's a fortune hunter. Just after your money!"
Burr. Isn't he the guy that wanted to set up his own little kingdom in Ohio?
Yes indeed, Burr and James Wilkinson, disgraced general, thought a nice little kingdom would be nice.
Good Morning Al....seems you enjoyed classroom history also...I did very much and many
times that 10 grade teacher would assign me a research project and to talk about it in front
