Generals Lee and Jackson won some great military victories during the War Between the States. This week, they won another.
The Hanover School Board voted 5-2 on Tuesday night to keep the names and mascots of Lee-Davis High School (Confederates) and Stonewall Jackson Middle School (Rebels) after a monthslong process in which the majority of county residents urged the board to leave the names undisturbed.
Voting in favor of keeping the names were Sue Dibble of the South Anna District, Roger Bourassa of the Mechanicsville District, Norman Sulser of the Cold Harbor District, John Axselle III of the Beaverdam District and Robert Hundley Jr. of the Chickahominy District.
Oh the poor, poor erasers of history must be crushed. Good! They deserve it frankly. Lee, and Jackson were decent honorable men and no one with even a basic grasp of these men would ever think they were anything but honorable.
