General Cleburne was born on March 16th 1828 at Bride Park Cottage, Kilumney, Ovens, Co Cork. Hopefully, attached, is a double picture of the bedroom where he was born. The beams are original to the building.
This is about 25 miles from I live.
I am currently reading Stonewall of the West - Patrick Cleburne & The Civil War by Craig L. Symonds. Cleburne was a fierce warrior on the field of battle and he was highly respected by the men under his command. As Robert E. Lee said, Cleburne was "a meteor shining from a clouded sky."
