    Tough call. I think official symbols like the Mississippi state flag should definitely be changed.
    I'm from Mississippi and couldn't care less about the flag. It's dumb to have an allegiance to it. It's dumb to want to change it. Changing it won't change anything. Dead serious.

    I somewhat agree.

    Symbols have meaning. Thats why we have them. Its why we have flags. Not sure where you stand on kneeling during the anthem but if it upsets you thats because of the symbolism behind it.


    Formal/official governmental symbols should not reflect separatist groups. We are a union afterall. Also the Confederate flag was clearly adopted by hate groups to such a striking degree that the two are inseparable now.

    Should the Pride flag be flying on government buildings? How about the "Don't Tread on Me" flag? What about the Soviet flag antifa members love to fly? Allow none or allow them all.

    Nice words, but what about actions? In the 1862 Maryland and 1863 Gettysburg campaign, black people were rounded up and sold into slavery. It also took the full 5 years for him to free the slaves inherited to him and his wife from her families estates (the famous Arlington house and 2 other plantations).

    Lee could be very contradictory.

    The only flags I believe should fly are the American flag, state/territory flags and the PoW/MiA flag

    Lee was incredibly contradictory, divisive, and shadowed in mystery. His family held slaves, and I believe he was ambiguous towards owning slaves himself. An incredible man to read about, and vastly different from what i'd been led to believe.

    No doubt he was as another post put it, “historically significant”. There are so many interesting people to read about from the Civil war. It happens to be my favorite historical topic and when I vacation on the east coast, the wife knows we are gonna stop at some random battlefield

    People of that era spoke so eloquently. Just read letters from soldiers to their loved ones. Even the uneducated ones spoke and wrote better than college graduates today.

    Just patently false. One has to be a good tactician AND strategist when dealing with thousands of lives. Lee never thought much about what happened after the battle, hence his resounding defeats, the last of which was at Appomattox.

    The Overland campaign, his utterly useless “breakout” attempt at Appomattox, and don’t get me started on Gettysburg. Quite a few more blunders but you can look them up for themselves. Washington and Lee university still maintains Pickett’s charge was Longstreet’s idea, all to maintain the myth of the great General Lee.

    Nice deflection (not really...) but in all honestly why should monuments to enemies of the United States be allowed to stand?
    Yeah, I never really understood why we have statues of literal traitors littering the South, but whatever, I never got triggered over statues, either, just seemed dumb. They're like giant participation trophies or something.

    Google the United daughters of the confederacy of you’re ever interested. They are the reason behind a great number of them. They are still active to this day.

    “Gone with the wind” is required scripture for them.

    Our forefathers were traitors to the crown. You do know the revolutionary War was a Civil War?

    In that time, the people who made up the bulk of the confederate forces believed what they were told to believe by their leaders which had an economic interest in not only maintaining slavery, but expanding it westward in the new states. There was also the fact all the northern states individually outlawed slavery far prior to the start of the war, that they refused to enforce the Fugitive slave act, nor would allow slave owners to come into their states to retrieve their “property”.

    A lot led up to the Civil war.

    Give it time. I can see why people want confederate stuff gone. Not that I agree with it but just because you don't agree with something doesn't mean it should go.

    First statues. Then rebel flags will become illegal. Then cemeteries flattened because they were bad people. On and on. I'm sure, might not in our lifetime but American flag next, veterans of all wars (because they did bad things), and who knows what else.

    I'm probably wrong but I just see things as if you don't agree with something call it dumb, racist, mean or whatever to get your way.
