Ep. 106: A Lea Family Tragedy

The Lea family were patriots.  Father Albert Lea was born in Tennessee and served in the Army after graduating West Point.  He went on to serve in various capacities by appointment of several different presidents.  His son attended the Naval academy and shot through the ranks as a Naval Officer.  But as the civil war approached, patriotism stood to pit father against son as each had to choose which country to fight for.  They would meet again, however, on the field of battle.  Learn the tragic tale of two good military men doing their best, and the tragic circumstances that war can bring, in the latest episode of Wise About Texas.
