Army seeks removal of Lee, 'Stonewall' Jackson honors

(Washington Times) The U.S. Army War College, which molds future field generals, has begun discussing whether it should remove its portraits of Confederate generals — including those of Robert E. Lee and Thomas “Stonewall” Jackson.

Nestled in rural Pennsylvania on the 500-acre Carlisle Barracks, the war college is conducting an inventory of all its paintings and photographs with an eye for rehanging them in historical themes to tell a particular Army story.

“Warriors of Honor: The Faith and Legacies of Robert E. Lee and Stonewall Jackson” is a rare and truly moving documentary about two great generals whose faith was their life. It is a faith-building presentation for all Christians.

During the inventory, an unidentified official — not the commandant, Maj. Gen. Anthony A. Cucolo III — asked the administration why the college honors two generals who fought against the United States, college spokeswoman Carol Kerr said.
