Another picture of Confederate general raises controversy in Culpeper-this time it’s Gen. Robert E. Lee
Confederate Civil War generals just seem to stay in the news in Culpeper.
For nearly a decade, the portrait of Gen. A.P. Hill, a Culpeper native, has been a center of controversy. Now a picture–actually two pictures in a single frame–of Gen. Robert E. Lee have been brought into the fray.
In a terse letter to the Board of Supervisors, an attorney representing the local chapter of the United Daughters of the Confederacy and the Warren Rifles Museum in Front Royal questioned the location of the Lee picture.
