In Topics:   History  Holiday from Stupidity
He was born in 1807, and General Robert E.Lee's birthday is this Thursday, not today. However, one may want to celebrate it today, so as to save some of that "Long-Covid" excused sick bank pay for another time.
Whether you work in an office or not, Office Holidays website says today is the holiday, at least in Alabama and Mississippi.* Since we have respect for neither the race-hustler loudmouth Martin King nor those cucks who voted to make a remembrance of him, Peak Stupidity choses to go along with Alabama and Mississippi and remember the great General Lee.
The Globalists and the ctrl-left want to bury these thoughts, but the real history is that General Robert E. Lee was respected by both sides of the War Between the States, officers and plain old Johnny Rebs and Billy Yanks alike. He was respected for fighting for his country (Virginia) and for doing a superb job at it.
I don't think the American military of today has anyone with the character and integrity of Robert E. Lee.
PS: I went through a few biography/history sites to find an unbiased short biography to link the reader to but got nowhere so far. You'd be best off doing a careful search or obtaining an older book.
* Georgia used to celebrate Robert E. Lee on the day after Thanksgiving, but they turned that into the lame "State Holiday", which almost everyone takes off anyway. That particular "Black" Friday may be a good day to visit a downtown retail establishment to observe the latest unpleasantness and appreciate General Lee that much more...
