Lee Owned Slaves


September 11, 2017

Jack Matthews wrote in a Sept. 4 letter that “Robert E. Lee owned no slaves.” Please fact check your letters to the editor before you publish. A cursory check of numerous popular and scholarly sources are clear — Lee did own slaves. Misstating facts to further a political view is indicative of either ignorance or a willing disregard for the facts. Neither belong in print.
