I think we should get rid of everything labeled Democrat. History tells us that the vast majority of slave owners were Democrats.

We should also get rid of all mention of Mexicans, as we all know they are really Spaniards that took Mexico by force from the Aztecs.

Trying to erase, or hide history is Ludacris. This is what the Political Correctness of the idiot left gives us every day. another good reason
for them to continue with the Jackass as their mascot.

A statue of General Lee reminds us of the conflict, the motivations of it, and the honor of those who resolved the dispute at a cost of thousand and thousands of American lives. It does no service to anyone past or present, to hide or remove the evidence of that cathartic time in our nation's birth and eventual maturity.

And those who propose we do so are obviously unaware, by choice or ignorance, of what sacrifice was made so that they could actually, albeit eventually, be free.

As for General Lee and Stonewall Jackson, there biggest crimes seem to be fighting Indians and owning slaves. Is General Washington and Thomas Jefferson to be next on the hit list?
From what I've read, General Robert E. Lee was ANTI-Slavery and when
he inherited some slaves from his father-in-law he promptly freed them.

Lincoln hated Lee. Not because of different sides of war, but personally.

Lee, a graduate of West Point, chose Virginia over the Union in spite of the promise of a superior command post offered by Lincoln. Lincoln didn't like being turned down, and he was spiteful. Arlington National is built on Lee's wife's (Custis) confiscated property. Starting at the front door.

As to freeing slaves, it was actually Custis, his father in law, who wanted his slaves freed. Lee was the executor of the will and resisted primarily because there was no other way to work the Custis plantations. Lee finally freed the slaves around 5 years later. So promptly is not exactly correct. And it was not his choice.

Lee and his family moved to Richmond and then on to the presidency of Washingon and Lee University where he served until death.

Today's history lesson.
