Filthy Traitor. Bobby Lee should have been hanged from a sour apple tree, right next to Jeff Davis, in partial atonement for all those loyal American Patriots he slaughtered. Treason in defense of Slavery was the worst cause a man ever died for.
Your historical ignorance is astounding.
” Filthy Traitor. Bobby Lee should have been hanged from a sour apple tree, right next to Jeff Davis,”
sure buddy , right after we travel back in time and hang Abe Lincoln , Phil Sheridan , Tscumsah Sherman and Nate Banks
in partial atonement for all those loyal American Patriots he slaughtered
Oh , you mean all those propaganda baited European immigrants , conscripted into Union Army service in their 100’s of 1000’s , right off the boats from Europe , into New England ports ? Were it not for these ‘loyal ‘american patriots’ the South would have handily won the war . And what were they given for their Union Army service ? The lands of the red man .....
Obama likes to compare himself to Lincoln and in that much they DO have a lot in common ; both are obsessed in forever changing the American dynamic by encouraging and facilitating vast amounts of non-American immigrants , to bolster their own Parties and demographics , at the full and total expense of those that came before and made up the real fabric of America ....
Did you ever wonder why the Union forces did not do that if it was truly a treasonous rebellion? The answer is they did not want to have a trial. It would have shown how wrong Lincoln was.
In order for Lee to be a traitor, he would have had to consider the United States to be his country. Like most people in the older states he considered his state to be his “country”, and the USA to be a collection of countries. Westerners were more likely to view the USA as their country because they moved from one state to another.
At least these great men had the courage to fight for what they believed. What do today’s “Americans” do: “Oh, I’m going to sue you.” Save your anger for the real traitor - the half-breed occupying the White House.
BTW, Slavery was as much a part of the US Constitution as it was for the Confederacy, just in clearer language.
"If you bring these [Confederate] leaders to trial it will condemn the North, for by the Constitution secession is not rebellion. Lincoln wanted Davis to escape, and he was right. His capture was a mistake. His trial will be a greater one." -- Chief Justice Salmon P. Chase
Read a book.
The Civil War was NOT fought over slavery. Just why would Lincoln wait until 1863 to issue the Emancipation Proclamation when the war started in 1861 if freeing slaves was the intent? He said that if he could preserve the union without freeing a single slave he would do it. Issuing the Emancipation Proclamation was a political move to prevent other nations (England) from throwing their support with the CSA. England did not want to be seen as supporting slavery.
it was about states rights
we could use some states rights today
Robert E. Lee was one of the finest Americans who ever lived.
