The equestrian monuments in Richmond and Charlottesville are going to end up in the hands of some woke group without a doubt.

So last week me and the guys in my Sons of Confederate Veterans group decided to have another one made. Might take us a few years but it'll happen. The wheels are in motion.

If anyone  took the time to read Lee's publicly available diary and many position documents, you'd know what an honorable man he was.  He actually cared more about the slavery issue than Grant.  Where might this monument go?  If education continues to misinform than what effect do you hope to get out of presumably privately shown commemorative piece?

While his wife owned slaves, R.E. Lee apparently found the whole thing so distasteful he never personally owned slaves.

The whole thing of applying modern moral positions to people of 150 years ago screams anachronism.

When the US was founded, slavery was present in just about every country in the world to some degree.

We where far from alone.

Throwing common sense and logic into an argument over a practice that ended 150+ years ago is going to get you nowhere with the wokies....
