… And One Against His Son

Another story about Gen. R. E. Lee—how disgusting! R. E. Lee was a slave owner who fought against the Union, and by his actions many young men died, yet he survived unhurt. In other parts of the world, he and Jefferson Davis would have been executed for treason. I do not think of him as a great warrior but as a traitor.
