Just Wondering …

August 19, 2017 --

With the removal of Confederate statues and monuments, will the campaign include the statue of Robert E. Lee at Gettysburg?

And isn’t there also a statue of Confederate Gen. Longstreet at Gettysburg?

Then too, there is the matter of Washington and Lee University, named for Gen. Lee, in addition to President Washington. Must Lee’s name be dropped? Must the entire name of the university be changed? And if Washington, too, becomes a suspect name, we shall have to rename the nation’s capital, won’t we?
