General Lee Avenue, Traitors and Loyalists

Robert E. Lee Was a Traitor

  • My gut reaction is to oppose the latest insanity of the Left to 1984 Memory-Hole all references to the South and our heritage.
  • But on the other hand, the fact is Southern Democrats were traitors.   No more, no less.  One of my family members was shot at Gettysburg by these Southern Democrat Traitors.
  • So while I will oppose these Leftist loons on general principal, I cannot get worked up about defending those who violated their oaths to the Constitution and committed treason.

(Daily Caller)  -  New York City Democrats plan to host a protest Tuesday in Brooklyn outside of Fort Hamilton to pressure the U.S. Army to rename two streets named after Confederate generals.

According to The Brooklyn Eagle, the protest in John Paul Jones Park, led by New York Democratic Rep. Yvette Clark and joined by fellow New York Democratic Reps. Nydia Velázquez, and Hakeem Jeffries, is scheduled to happen outside the main gate of Fort Hamilton where demonstrators will demand the Army change the names of the streets inside the fort: General Lee Avenue and Stonewall Jackson Drive.

During the 1840s, 20 years before the Civil War, Robert E. Lee and Stonewall Jackson were posted at Fort Hamilton.

Clarke has previously demanded the renaming of the streets located in her Brooklyn district but the Army rejected her request.

He Remained Loyal to the Union
Born in Virginia, General Winfield Scott remained loyal to his oath and to the Union. At the start of the Civil War, Scott took steps to defend Washington, DC and ensure the successful inauguration of Abraham Lincoln. Though too old and infirm to take the field, Scott served as Lincoln's principal military adviser at the start of the war.

He Remained Loyal to the Union
Born in Virginia, General George Henry Thomas remained loyal to his oath and to the Union.  Confederate Col. J.E.B. Stuart, wrote to his wife, "Old George H. Thomas is in command of the cavalry of the enemy. I would like to hang, hang him as a traitor to his native state."

He Remained Loyal to the Union
Born in Tennessee, Admiral David Farragut remained loyal to his oath and to the Union.  Farragut made it clear to all who knew him that he regarded secession as treason. Just before the war's outbreak, Farragut moved with his Virginian-born wife to Hastings-on-Hudson, a small town just outside New York City..

As wars ended , history are made by the victorious .
So calling traitors , or loyalists are an assumption made on time, and outcome .
As so all Southern military will be called traitors by not to abide by the Federal oath on the US Constitution in those times .
Neverthless if so , many , or all States , that became independent, from coming apart from others ... may called traitors as so .All South America , the US from Britain , India and Pakisthan from British Raj , ... you name it .
Thats a longfargone conclusion.
On it history must be cherish , and to learn about it for the future , not to keep grievances.
So what left was the role of those who fought in those ancient times , on reason , and will .
So military history is there to valued the role of the people of those times that fought in those armies , and navy .
Lee and Stonewall are know as good military men , that kept those armies running far from theyre scarce numbers , guns and resources . Lee made errors in Gettysburg , as JEB Stuart fail on him . Winfield Scott as he keep loyal to the Union he miss to win , as he got more men , and guns in those first clashes in Bull Run . Henry Thomas i dunno . Farragut perform good on seal South ports with a blockade , so indispensable to the final victory . Many other generals fought hard and good as Ulisses Grant , but MacDowell miss the chance to hit hard the Confederacy as he fear to engage , as only by two or three times more numbers , so Lincoln push him around .
History is waht it is.Erase it , and we don`t learn for the future .

Lee give choice to State alliegance as a virginian .
He pay a higher price as he lost the family estate in Arlington , as the Union , keep burying his soldiers over there , as to be secure that after the war , the Lee`s , got no desire to live in it .Lee son i think try to got back that estate , but the Federal gov , made a move to rule it as "sacret ground" on those buried soldiers ... so since it`s the US Military sacred ground to all those who die to uphold the american constitution , and freedoms ... neverdless many others in europe and else that never came back.
Lee fought , and keep the Confederacy Forces engage for 4 years , and after he was let alone by friends and ancient foes , as a valiant soldier .
History is what it is . And must mature , not to be sour .
Those now events in america are only a shamefull fight for empowerment from greedy politicians , and activists , with a hidden agenda on became dependentes of social welfare . As those fake nazis . A disgrace never come alone . The two sides of the same coin.

General Robert E. Lee was, in my estimation, one of the supremely gifted men produced by our Nation. He believed unswervingly in the Constitutional validity of his cause which until 1865 was still an arguable question in America; he was a poised and inspiring leader, true to the high trust reposed in him by millions of his fellow citizens; he was thoughtful yet demanding of his officers and men, forbearing with captured enemies but ingenious, unrelenting and personally courageous in battle, and never disheartened by a reverse or obstacle. Through all his many trials, he remained selfless almost to a fault and unfailing in his faith in God. Taken altogether, he was noble as a leader and as a man, and unsullied as I read the pages of our history.

From deep conviction, I simply say this: a nation of men of Lee’s calibre would be unconquerable in spirit and soul. Indeed, to the degree that present-day American youth will strive to emulate his rare qualities, including his devotion to this land as revealed in his painstaking efforts to help heal the Nation’s wounds once the bitter struggle was over, we, in our own time of danger in a divided world, will be strengthened and our love of freedom sustained.

Such are the reasons that I proudly display the picture of this great American on my office wall.
– Dwight D. Eisenhower

Lee was also a traitor who refused to honor his oath, freely taken, to protect the Constitution of the United States. Instead he made war on those honoring that oath and killed them.

Its a most short sized vision of those times , gary .
On sharing that vision , even George Washington was a traitor , or all the founding fathers to royal Britain .
Or the revolutionnary french, and the soviets , even those give oath to king and czar , in some time of their lifes .Even in the military WWI rank and file as in czarist russia to the soviet one .
Things are not as white or black , as those "palloka" so call white "clowns" supremacists, or "junk" ANTIFA "looneybins" , say it was ...
