Governor’s decision to remove statue is the right one
Regarding the governor’s intent to remove the statue of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee in Richmond:
Lee will never be forgotten, but he should not be honored or revered. He lost. His side lost. His cause was wrong and immoral. They were all traitors to the Union and defenders of enslaving Africans to benefit the white Christian economy and society. The statue of the traitor Confederate soldier in Winchester (on Frederick County property) should also be removed to the inside of the old courthouse/ museum as a relic of The Lost Cause.
