    Although it seems more people may find this politically incorrect, the fact is ,here in the South celebrating this day is part of our heritage.
    Sadly ,Some declare our history as inappropriate and seek to change our values ,I’m sorry I have to disagree .
    Due to pressure of the PC ,This holiday, although now officially recognized in just two remaining states ,was celebrated throughout the South Since 1866. History should not be forgotten .
    Happy ROBERT E LEE’s birthday.

    Lee was an interesting fellow

    Fought hard for the USA

    Then fought against it

    Lost badly and took his lumps with grace

    He wasn’t the villain he was made out to be, or the hero he was made out to be either. He’s somewhere in the middle...like all historical figures

    “Political Correctness” DOES NOT trump American history! {Never forget... it made us who we are}
