Tom Lee

While in Memphis, we took 'the cousins' (my kids and Campbell Clansman's sister's kids) to Tom Lee Park down by the river. While there we learned a little about Tom Lee, the man for whom the park was named. Unable to swim, he was able to pull many (on a sinking boat) to safety from his small boat. This courageous man has had a sculpture built in his honor. Here the kids are re-enacting it. His monument also provided the only shade miles around!
