Laughable! CnC of the Confederate States of America?
A friendly command is, Smoke em if you got em, or even parade rest, after hours at attention. I'm just messing and point received JerseyBart. I thought it was on topic or at least plausible. Apologies for my mistake.Let us steer this ship back on course.

No problem at all. Just an in general reminder to all, including me.A friendly command is, Smoke em if you got em, or even parade rest, after hours at attention. I'm just messing and point received JerseyBart. I thought it was on topic or at least plausible. Apologies for my mistake.
Thanks for the tip, but still . . .Stone Mountain was a tremendous disappointment when I was there about 20 years ago. Tiny figures scratched on the side of the rock face, and a tired looking amusement park. Its obviously trying to ape Mount Rushmore, but it just comes across as pathetic. Leaving aside none of the folks were even from Georgia.
Lee was never commander in chief of all Confederate forces. That role always belonged to Jefferson Davis. CSA Constitution, Article 2 Section 2 Part 1.No, you don't like the answer so it isn't relevant to you, but the connections between Lee as commander in chief of all confederate forces, the service of the Louisiana Tigers and other Louisiana troops under Lee, and Lee's role in, importance to the south before, during and after the war is important to history. That it means nothing to you is meaningless to me.
Couldn't agree more. Only I'd add that while some profit from it, Walmart etc., votes are of endless monetary value. Cost in that case is a moot point, unfortunately.. We're paying for it, not them..But...back to the topic now. It would be a time and money consuming/wasting effort for towns and states to remove these monuments. They have plenty of historical importance so use them to understand, add to, explain and/or correct history.
The plaque says Commander in Chief, not General in Chief. If I recall correctly, he was made General in Chief way too late in the war to do much good. Had he been made General in Chief earlier, the outcome might have been different.
I beg to differ.Lee was never commander in chief of all Confederate forces. That role always belonged to Jefferson Davis. CSA Constitution, Article 2 Section 2 Part 1.
If pandering is defined as "politicians doing what the folks I disagree with want them to do," then it's pandering. The comment is out of context now. It was said that politicians wanting to remove the statues are "pandering." The same can be said of the era in which they were placed.
Yes these hate groups need to stop useing it for that. My ancestors fought for there honor and there home
Rebforever, if you are going to say I am factually wrong, how about you back it up with some actual evidence. That link that you posted isn't proof of anything. I say that because it has no actual attribution to original sources for any of its claims. Meanwhile, here is a copy of the actual order making him General in Chief, not Commander in Chief.
I understand but my ancesotrs and most people who fought for the south didnt own sdslaves they were poor farmers
