Down Goes Robert E. Lee in Richmond

Andrew Donaldson

Born and raised in West Virginia, Andrew has since lived and traveled around the world several times over. Though frequently writing about politics out of a sense of duty and love of country, most of the time he would prefer discussions on history, culture, occasionally nerding on aviation, and his amateur foodie tendencies. He can usually be found misspelling/misusing words on Twitter @four4thefire and his writing website Yonder and Home. Andrew is the host of Heard Tell podcast.

    Good news. Just checked Wikipedia and the civil war and Lee are still there. History has been erased yet. But keep checking you never know what we have forgotten.

    And of course good riddance to bad rubbish. OReport

    I say, celebrate emancipation. I love “broken chains” statues. Yes, emancipation was imperfect and the work of achieving equality isn’t done yet. But it’s a moment whose spirit was worth celebrating then, and remains worthy to celebrate today.Report
