Today’s Ray Of Hope

Posted on | December 19, 2013 | 10 Comments


Yesterday’s Washington Times featured an article by Rowan Scarborough indicating that the Army War College at Carlisle Barracks, Pa. was going to be removing portraits of Confederate generals such as Robert E. Lee and Stonewall Jackson, and hinted that this was more political correctness run wild, as in the case of Duval County, Florida’s Nathan B. Forrest High School, soon to be renamed something less offensive. For The ChildrenTM.

Evidently the commandant of the War College reads the Times, or was informed of the article, since he posted an article to the War College blog pointing out the several inaccuracies in the article and stating that there was no plan to “remove all traces of the CSA”. They are planning on adding more art dealing with the Iraq and Afghanistan Wars, as well as organizing the art in a less random fashion, which will mean less of the Civil War-oriented art that currently dominates the walls, but there is by no means a politically correct art purge going on at Carlisle Barracks. So that’s something.

    If that is true, then there is a paper trail where someone proposed it, it was routed for leadership inputs, and was approved by the commandant. Producing this paperwork would do much to reduce the skepticism we’re seeing these days.

    I’m also wondering where they’ll move the art work of old generals to?

    I can see the desire to memorialize what has happened recently.

    Lest we forget.

    Nothing invidious is going on. This is been on a couple of MilBlogs earlier. XBradTC has a post on this over at his place.
