R. E. Lee Memorial Church is adjacent to Washington and Lee University in Lexington, Virginia. Robert E. Lee served as Senior Warden of the church while he was President of Washington College and the church was renamed in his honor after his death. Lee's last public event before his death was to chair a meeting of the vestry to discuss the salary of the rector. He personally pledged to donate the money needed to meet the rector's salary.
