brad: The idiot that tweeted the difference between Robert E Lee and Washington missed a big point one was a slave owner and one was not. Washington owned slaves, Lee did not. Lee was vocal in wanting slavery to end. Lee aslo fought to end slavery, see the confederacy had a constitution that ended slavery in an orderly way. The north only freed the slaves up north after the war. The civil war was not about slavery it was about state rights and the federal government overstepping its athority.
