Lee.  He was a Rockbridge County native.  He contributed greatly to the field of Civil War Era photography.  He served under General Thomas “Stonewall” Jackson in the Civil War. Miley moved to Staunton, Va. where he studied photography under J. H. Burdett.  There he learned to print positive images using the albumen wet-plate process.  I have Rebel Relics Priced this one under market.  Every collection needs a General Lee image.
