January 30, 1975, Senate Joint Resolution 23, a joint resolution to restore posthumously full rights of citizenship to General R. E. Lee was introduced into the Senate by Senator Harry F. Byrd, Jr. (I-VA). The resolution was to restore the U.S. citizenship to Robert E. Lee effective June 13, 1865. This resolution was the result of a five year campaign to posthumously restore Robert E. Lee’s U.S. citizenship.

On September 28, 1870, Lee suffered a stroke. He died two weeks later, shortly after 9 a.m. on October 12, 1870, in Lexington, Virginia from the effects of pneumonia.

    As I remember it, and I do have an excellent memory, back in the 50’s and early 60’s our teachings of the American Civil War portrayed both Grant and Lee as great General’s fighting for theidr causes. This past is dead and gone. Today’s heroes as annointed by the anti- american Hollywood homo’s are those who marched in Selma or New York City’s Halloween parades. The negro stays on the plantation and the liberals take care of the rest.

      You saw on the news the “All Lives Matter” dinner, rally, and march this just passed weekend didn’t you? /sar Herman Cain, former FL Lt Gov. Jennifer Carrol and Carl Smith, founder of the Frederick Douglass Republicans. I admit I didn’t go. Somehow I missed the liberal rag, mullet wrapper, highlighted story locally about it. /sar TV covered the dinner pretty well. There is good food at New World Landing. The march and laying of a wreath at Veteran’s Memorial Park the next morning I think they missed, as it was Saturday, day off. Then again, maybe no one showed up. Who knows (statement, not a question ).

    Fred, the progressives are slowly revising our history. Starting with the Confederate flag. Our national monuments are being removed and references to our civil war are distorted for the benefit of betraying the youth in this great country. The younger generation knows little about world wars one and two and even less about the Civil War. All they know is that white people had slaves, even the founders of our Republic. Common Core education is about dumbing down the young and allowing foreign workers who are “smarter” than american students access to our jobs and benefits. I pity my son in law, who through no real fault of his own doesn’t have a good grip on how to support his family. Sadly, they rely heavily on government assistance. If Trump or Cruz can’t get elected for whatever the reason, I fear our future is sealed.

    I feel for you Wayne. When my son wasn’t sure he wanted to teach I told him he might keep in mind that when the communists take over they will still need teachers and he would still have a job. How sad that as Americans we would get to a point where this would be a serious consideration. I pray for my children and grandchildren.

      Peter, I will pray for your son. We need honest teachers who won’t munch on the liberal turds being fed by a bunch of sick freaks. I ask one favor too: when you’re tempted to refer to queers as Hollywood Homos, can you refer to them as Frisco Freaks instead? That’s where they started before invading Hollyweird, guzzling down Harvey’s Milk and fruitcakes. And it’s worse in Frisco, for they prance around naked in public streets. At least in Hollywood, there are rules the LAPD enforces which keep the sick freaks from taking their pants off in public.

    I grew up in Upstate NY. Back when I was in school, the Civil War was one of my big interests. Funny thing is that when reading about Southern Generals, their descriptions would be of Christian men of high integrity, character, and honor. But, the Northern Generals would be characterized as drunken womanizers. Maybe that’s why Lincoln fired so many of them.

  5. Wayne says:

    You just stirred some memories Bob. When I was a Boy Scout and later on an Explorer Scout, Troop 24 and Post 24 would put a trip together to Gettysburg. We camped on one of the battlefields and had three days of history touring all the historic sites. My favorite was the Electric Map. I don’t even know if it still exists but it was a fantastic overview of all the battles fought there.

  6. "Mr. E" says:

    If there’s one thing I remember how they taught about the Civil War back in the 70s in Orange County California, they focused on why the war broke out, which was the ideology differences regarding slavery between the North and South. The generals’ moral characters were not highlighted, but they were not demonized either, unlike today. Libtards demonize everyone with high moral standards and celebrate all who are evil such as freaks like Harvey Milk.
