“US Military Begins Multi-Million Project Renaming Army Bases, Navy Ships Linked To Confederacy.”

Can you name any other nation that named army bases and navy ships after rebel generals in a bloody civil war? Can you name any other nation that felt itself so secure that it could honor rebel leaders? Can you name any other nation that went so far to reconcile two warring factions? You can’t? My point exactly.

When Lee surrendered to Grant, effectively ending the Civil War, a celebratory crowd gathered outside the White House. The Army band played patriotic songs.  Lincoln appeared at the window, responded to the cheers, and told the band to play “Dixie.” He sought to heal wounds. The current activists seek to reopen wounds.
