William Henry Fitzhugh Lee

William Henry Fitzhugh Lee, (1837-1905), nacido en Arlington, general del ejército confederado en la Guerra Civil Americana y más tarde congresista de los Estados Unidos por Virginia. Al estallar la Guerra de Cuba, con España, era cónsul ante España de los Estados Unidos en La Habana, y fue uno de los protagonistas del escándalo montado alrededor del hundimiento del buque "Maine". Durante la Guerra con España comandó el VII cuerpo de ejército, convirtiéndose en el único general sudista que mandaba tropas del Ejército Federal de EEUU. Fue enterrado con su uniforme del U.S. Army, lo que provocó el malestar de sus antiguos compañeros de armas "¡Qué pensará Stonewall cuando Fritz se le cruce en el cielo llevando eso!"
