H. K. Edgerton on the Lee Chapel Controversy

Our hero H. K. Edgerton is quoted by several Confederate heritage groups as offering the following opinion:

The desecration of the Memorial at Washington and Lee is no less a declaration of War against the South than was Lincoln’s illegal attack upon Ft. Sumter. And to use unknowledgeable college youth with the aid of those who are there to protect the legacy and Memorial to General Lee and his men is tantamount to the acts of Judas, Benedict Arnold and MiMi Elrod . Kenneth Ruscio should be immediately dismissed and the Board of Trustees investigated under the premise of their dismissal as well.

You may have to read that middle sentence a few times to understand what Edgerton’s saying (before Connie Chastain tells you what he really meant to say, of course).

    To hell with the middle sentence ! I’m just glad somebody is finally espousing the truth ! It was Lincoln that loaded and fired that first cannon at Ft. Sumter ! Now that it’s out, H.K., back under your rock😉

    Lincoln attacked Fort Sumter? What alternate universe is this guy from? It is pretty clear from that comment alone there is no way anyone could have a rationale reasonable factual conversation with this person.

    The statement by H.K. really reads as, “I am grateful that another controversy exists so that unwitting dupes will continue to buy cheaply made Southern heritage crap from the company I am paid by as well as pay my speaking fees so that I don’t have to have an actual job.”

    Lincoln attacked Sumter to get his Irish slave back.
