“I have never been accused of beating slaves, nor of treason, nor of assault on another.”

And since when is accusation equated with fact? Is that a habit you picked up over at DU?

I mean a few of us certainly accuse you of being dishonest and a fool. Does accusation equal fact then, too? Or are accusations ‘fact’ only when you like them?

So is it your contention that Lee did not make war against the United States? How deluded are you?

Lee himself applied for pardon, acknowledging it.

Didn’t you know that?

The persons who accuse me of being dishonest are themselves dishonest.

The persons who accuse me of being a fool are themselves foolish.

By contrast, the persons who recognize flaws in Lee and in the motivations and practices of Slave Power are using facts, and morally are on the side of the angels.
