Such a shame that the bloodline led to revolting against the Union.

Robert E. Lee was an American who fought for what he believed in.

Lee Circle in New Orleans removed the statue of Robert E. Lee 2 years ago and could be renamed Drew Brees circle.

How can you learn from history if you try to remove or erase it?
