McGee Family: Divided LoyaltiesThe Civil War in Spotsylvania County is steeped in McGee family history. Reuben McGee, the patriarch, lived behind you on the opposite side of Lick Run. Among Reuben McGee's five sons were one ardent Confederate (Reuben McGee, Jr.), two Southern army deserters (Robert McGee and Sanford McGee), one Union spy (Ebenezer McGee), and one with Union sympathies (Absalom McGee) who lived just two stops further along this trail.
