Subject: Va Flaggers: Flagging Lexington Final Countdown – Up Men…and To Your Posts!
130 years ago, E. Benjamin Andrews, then President of Brown University, himself a veteran of the Yankee army, said: "The question of greatness is a relative thing and we in America will probably always differ as to the rank of our prominent men. But if any American father were asked which of our great men he would most want his own son to resemble, that father, if he were wise, would be compelled to answer, "Robert E. Lee"."
Nothing can be added to that statement. Education can propose no finer service than to offer the character of Lee as the pattern upon which youth may shape its hope.
LEE The Final Achievement
Speeches by Dr. Francis Pendleton Gaines, President Washington and Lee University
The town of Lexington, Virginia, has essentially turned its back on Lee, Jackson, and its rich Confederate history and heritage.
Join us, as we "take it to the streets" to let the folks in Lexington and Washington & Lee University know that there are still many of us who honor Lee and Jackson and will not go away quietly.
