The Crisis, Marchv. Lee Each year on the 19th of January there is renewed effort to canonize Robert E. Lee, the greatest confederate general. His personal comeliness, his aristocratic birth and his military prowess all call for the verdict of greatness and genius.
But one thing—one terrible fact—militates against this and that is the inescapable truth that Robert E. Lee led a bloody war to perpetuate slavery.
Copperheads like the New York Times may magisterially declare: The South cared only for State Rights as a weapon to defend slavery. If nationalism had been a stronger defense of the slave system than particularism, the South would have been as nationalistic in as it had been in People do not go to war for abstract theories of government.
They fight for property and privilege and that was what Virginia fought for in the Civil War. And Lee followed Virginia. He followed Virginia not because he particularly loved slavery although he certainly did not hate itbut because he did not have the moral courage to stand against his family and his clan.
Lee hesitated and hung his head in shame because he was asked to lead armies against human progress and Christian decency and did not dare refuse. He surrendered not to Grant, but to Negro Emancipation. Today we can best perpetuate his memory and his nobler traits not by falsifying his moral debacle, but by explaining it to the young white south.
What Lee did inother Lees are doing in They lack the moral courage to stand up for justice to the Negro because of the overwhelming public opinion of their social environment.1.
