Opinion/Letter: Lee spoke for reconciliation, against slavery

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

One letter shows General Lee’s wish against slavery and for reconciliation. There are a lot of beliefs and misinformation about the General. He said he was rejoiced that slavery was abolished. He was a peace advocate and wanted the best for everyone. It is important to recognize these comments in our current political climate.

Key Takeaways:

  • In response to the conflicts that are dividing our country and our community, I would submit some comments by Gen. Robert E. Lee after the Civil War.
  • Some people have presented an inaccurate picture of who Lee is, his character, and what he desired after four years of war.
  • I think it is the duty of every citizen, in the present condition of the Country, to do all in his power to aid in the restoration of peace and harmony.
