There's no such logical conclusion, any more than it being logical that Christians should tear down the Roman Coliseum since Christians were fed to the lions there. I'm a non-southerner who thinks Lincoln's influence was malign, but I would never lead a movement to destroy the Lincoln Memorial. Those monuments stayed up without objection for 100+ years because people saw it as their shared history.I challenge you folks engaging in what I euphemistically call historical revisionism to be intellectually congruent and follow your revisionism to its logical conclusion - if you are going to say Lee was not a traitor or be upset that his statue is removed from Congress, you must push for the removal of the Lincoln Memorial and for the removal of any statues celebrating Ulysses Grant.
Lee saw a higher loyalty to Virginia than the US. Antebellum America was widely (and constitutionally) recognized as a confederation of states, the United States in America, not the monolith United States of America it became postwar. That was a key component of the whole war.
The monument destroyers have been going after north and south. Lee, Jackson, Lincoln, Grant... doesn't matter. The founding fathers as well. It's all "white" to them and it all needs to come down. The leveling was never going to stop at the Confederacy. It's no different in how they run over any white in the path of "progress," regardless of their prior progressive bona fides.
