The fabric in this display originated from a chair that originally covered a chair belonging to Robert E. Lee. It was found in an old envelope noted, "General Robert E. Lee, button and material from his rocking chair which he presented to his friend Stanton...Grosse Isle." The Stanton mentioned was the fifth son of General Henry Stanton who served with Lee in the Mexican War, Robert Lee Stanton [1842 - 1932]. Robert Lee Stanton was named after Robert E. Lee and was his Godchild. He moved to Grosse Isle, Michigan in 1880 and became a farmer. The chair in the photo is not the chair that this fabric originated from. 11" x 14", gray mat with red trim. Fabric piece, which measures approx. 1" x 1", is displayed in a small magnified box and includes certificate of authenticity. Unframed.   [ld]
