THE GREATEST LEADER OF AMERICA’S CIVIL WAR When South Carolina seceded from the Union, the first person offered the job of commanding the Union forces to return the rebel state to the fold was Robert E. Lee. But when his home state voted to join the Confederacy, he resigned his commission in the Union Army and took command of the Army of Northern Virginia. What he did then is legend and he remains the most admired general on either side of the conflict for his superb strategy and ability to find success in the face of far superior numbers. Now, his military achievements inspire The Robert E. Lee Proof Coin from the Bradford Exchange Mint. Magnificently plated in 99.9% silver, this exclusive coin’s reverse showcases the historic Great Civil War General surrounded…

LINCOLN MEMORIAL Harold Holzer’s gracefully written and CWT’s finely adapted and edited “For the People” was worth the price of a subscription—and more. Having spent 22 years of my life working in the District of Columbia, I eventually succumbed to the familiarity with its monuments that breeds, not contempt, but a certain degree of apathy. This article re-stirred my appreciation for French’s powerful image, which, as the author correctly observes, has gained in significance for a nation still coming to terms with the meaning of emancipation. Thank you for what you do. Bill Palmer, West Point, Va. The article “For the People” in the October 2019 issue states that The Gettysburg Address and words from Lincoln’s First Inaugural Address are carved on the walls of the Lincoln Memorial. The Gettysburg Address is…

Two recent ceremonies at the magnificent Cuyahoga County Soldiers’ and Sailors’ Monument in downtown Cleveland’s Public Square renewed the memory of soldiers from Cleveland and the surrounding county. On June 19, framed panels naming 107 USCT soldiers were put inside the small memorial room at the base of the 125-foot memorial, adding to the 9,000 names already inscribed on 30 marble tablets on the walls. The additional names were discovered thanks to research initiated in 2001 by history teacher Paul LaRue and his students at Washington High School in Washington Court House, Ohio. Their research on seven USCT veterans buried in a local cemetery led to the monument commission conducting further research and discovering 100 more names—with perhaps more to come. The ceremony was conducted on the anniversary of Juneteenth,…
