Controversy over General Robert E. Lee Monuments

Here’s Ervin Jordan speaking at the 2017 American Civil War Museum Symposium at the Library of Virginia on the controversy surrounding monuments to Robert E. Lee.

The video’s description reads, “Ervin Jordan, author of Black Confederates and Afro-Yankees in Civil War Virginia talked about the controversies over the monument in Charlottesville, Virginia, of Confederate General Robert E. Lee. ‘Monument Man: Robert E. Lee: America’s Most Honored Traitor’ was part of the American Civil War Museum’s 2017 annual symposium, ‘Lightning Rods of Controversy: Civil War Monuments Past, Present, and Future.’ It was co-sponsored by the John L.
