    Wasn't it Senator Joe Biden that voted in 1975 to restore Robert E. Lee's citizenship?

    But then forty-four years later, Biden trashes Trump about Charlottesville, Virginia.

    The president’s remarks Friday also appeared to bolster Biden’s argument the day before. Biden, in making his 2020 pitch, described a deep divide between his view of Charlottesville as a clash between “those spreading hate and those with the courage to stand against it,” and Trump’s own view that there were “very fine people on both sides.” Biden, in his announcement video, said Trump’s response to the rally was evidence of a “battle” underway “for the soul of this nation.”
    That's going to look real good when Biden has to go up against Trump. I am sure his [Biden] excuse will be: "Man, I am getting old. Cut me some slack."

    How much you want to bet if Biden makes it to the election, that the blacks will vote for him.
    Reminds me of KKK LEADER Sen. Byrd:

    Longest serving Senator ever. Dems kept him around for over 51 years, cause he "saw the light and all".;)
    Hillary @ his funeral:
    “Today our country has lost a true American original, my friend and mentor Robert C. Byrd.”. How many blacks voted for her?:eusa_doh:

    Correct me if I am wrong...

    He (General Robert E. Lee) was a Confederate General and when the Civil War was over and the southern states became part of the newly United States of America. He commanded the Army Northern Virginia until his surrender in 1865.

    Meanwhile, the left wants to "erase" history, as if it never happened.

    So.....no. You don't know a damn thing you're talking about.

    After the end of the Civil War President Johnson issued a general amnesty and pardon for former confederates, with a handful of special exceptions for high ranking military and political leaders. Individuals excepted were required to apply for a special pardon, and would be required to take a specified oath expressing loyalty to the United States constitution and government.

    Of the 14 classes of individuals Johnson specified, Lee belonged to the third (member of the confederate army above the rank of colonel) and the eight (officers of the confederate military educated by the US government at either of the military academies in West Point or Annapolis). Lee eventually made his application and submitted his written oath, but it never made it to Johnson for an unknown reason. Accordingly, his citizenship was not restored.

    In 1970 new documents were discovered showing that Lee sent his application, it was approved by the War Department, and that he had made the required oath in writing. That is why Congress restored Lee's citizenship.
