 Robert E. Lee | generallee

A friend recently asked me to name someone I truly admire. I wish the name of someone living today had come to mind, but none did. There is a man I greatly admire, but he has been dead 150 years: Robert E. Lee. He has had a strange career as a figure of admiration.Union soldiers had a high regard for his ability and character, and as the years went by, Northerners admired him and Southerners revered him. As late as 1975, Congress recognized what it called “his outstanding virtues.”

Now, the general is hated — more, I’m sure, than he ever was by the men he was trying to kill on the battlefield. Earlier this year, the New York Times called him and all Confederates “racist traitors.” The next month, this is what vandals did to the base of his monument in Richmond, Virginia.
