“Robert E. Lee was married to George Washington’s granddaughter. He worked with Ulysses S. Grant during the Mexican-American war, and became a decorated war hero defending this country. He believed slavery was a great evil, and his wife broke the law by teaching slaves to read and write.

After the civil war he worked with Andrew Johnson’s program of reconstruction. He became very popular with the northern states and the Barracks at West Point were named in his honor in 1962. He was a great man who served this country his entire life in some form or other.

His memorial is now being called a ‘blight’. As they tear down this ‘blight’, keep these historical facts in your mind. No American military veteran and highly decorated war hero should ever be treated as such. This is not Iraq and that is not a statue of Sadam.

Lee was also very torn about the prospect of the South leaving the Union. George Washington was a huge influence on him. He believed that ultimately a states’ rights trumped the federal government, and chose to lead the Southern army.

His Arlington estate, near Washington D.C., was his home and while away fighting the war, the federal government demanded that Lee himself pay his taxes in person. He sent his wife, but the money was not accepted from a woman. When he could not pay the taxes, the government began burying dead Union soldiers on his land. The government is still burying people there today. It is now called the Arlington National Cemetery.”  - Jim Serritella
