    If you understood American history and how this country was created and understood the united states was not the United States of America, but a group of states with their own sovereignty,
    You would not be such a horses ass.
    Lee did not betray his country he defended it.

    I think Americans think a lot of people are traitors to their country. They will be saying that about Julian Assange when he dies, too.

    It is pretty easy for pompous assholes to declare people traitors or heroes, isn't it? The simple fact is that the people who were alive back then did not judge him a traitor, he was not even charged. That tells me that they had more character than anyone that would pronounce judgement on a person they have never met.

    You have a real bad problem understanding Modern America much less late 18th century to mid 19th century America.

    Actually it was because Andrew Johnson pardoned everyone shortly after the war so no one could be charged with treason. Lee did lose his voting rights and status as a United States citizen though as well as most of his land.

    Johnson Pardon was due to his discussion and advisement from a couple of supreme court justices because they was not any laws broken.
