Lee is the only cadet who graduated from West Point without ever receiving a demerit. His name was permanently removed from the Demerit list at some point. He is the only one so honored.

He also had great personal reservations about leaving the US Army for the Confederate Army but his first loyalty was to the Commonwealth of Virginia. States were at the time considered superior to the union. In fact, it was after WWI that folks traveling in Europe would answer to being an American first rather than a Texan, Virginian, or whatever state they were born in.

They can do what they want, it will not come down from my living room wall!

Got a nicely framed print of this painting hanging in a respected place.

"The Christian General" by William Maughan.

Guess they dont respect real men in history. Wait, he was a Confederate.........which means he was a racist....which means it isnt politically correct to have his picture hanging there. What garbage, these folks are idiots.

Gays can now get married in the West Point chapel. (no such thing as "gay marriage" by definition.) Maybe Lee would want his portrait taken down.

His portrait will no doubt be replaced by the first lesbian general.

Just like the bust of Winston Churchill in the White House, bho had it shipped back to the UK because he was a evil, African persecuting 'colonialist'.

He also made it to Mandellas funeral but not Margaret Thatcher. He even found time to shake hands with a socialist dictator and take fun selfie pix but our greatest ally, the UK...sorry couldnt make it. Had to go golfing.
