Robert E. Lee’s tenure as President of Washington College (now Washington and Lee University) should be regarded as one of the most important events in American educational history, and it was for decades. He saved the struggling school, recruited young men from around the South, and instituted the honor code, a set of principles still used by students at the school today. But woke academics have worked to undermine Lee’s reputation, and as a result the school is considering removing Lee’s name from the University. This would not only be foolish, but ahistorical as Philip Leigh explains in this short video.
