U.S. Army General (Ret.) Ty Seidule’s Mission to Rename Military Bases May Be His Ultimate Battle Against the Lost Cause

Here’s an outstanding discussion with BG Ty Seidule on the podcast “Ice House,” from the NY Stock Exchange. They discuss GEN Seidule’s book, Robert E. Lee and Me, and the issue of renaming Army bases named for confederates as well as the lost cause lie.

The episode’s description reads, “Brigadier General Ty Seidule (Ret.), a member of the DoD’s commission reviewing bases and other military instillations bearing names linked to the Confederacy, explains what’s in a name. Seidule, the former head of the history department at West Point and author of Robert E. Lee and Me, a Southerner’s Reckoning with the Myth of the Lost Cause, is cutting through the mythology that he grew up surrounded by to reveal a legacy of racism and inequality that the nation needs to repair.”
