Talk:Robert E. Lee
I've rolled back the edits of everwill, because I caught him copying an article from wikipedia, and most of his edits seem to be almost word for word from wikipedia.--Elamdri 09:07, 1 April 2007 (EDT)
Doing it over, starting from scratch, etc etc etc. Should be done tomorrow or Monday. Karajou 01:22, 8 April 2007 (EDT)
Yes, the article is in progress; will let everyone know when done. Karajou 02:47, 8 April 2007 (EDT)
There are views of Lee as a man which I didn't include yet, and these are views on him regarding slavery, his relationship with God, with Grant, etc, and these should be included on the page in a subheading titled "Assessment", which I will do later. Karajou 17:09, 12 April 2007 (EDT)
- Just added to it. It could use a little more. Karajou 01:57, 13 April 2007 (EDT)
It is Veracruz, not Vera Cruz.

- Back in the 1840's, the U.S. used the two-word "Vera Cruz" for this city, instead of the modern, "Veracruz". I have corrected the entry for the modern name, but left the spelling in Scott's dispatch quotation exactly as it was. Karajou 18:02, 17 April 2007 (EDT)
Could be beetter?: Vera Cruz (actually Veracruz).
Also R. E. Lee better than L.E. Lee?

What's this section for? It does not seem encyclopedic, nor does it add anything to the piece. I think it should be deleted. PhilScheur 14:25, 5 May 2008 (EDT)
- Lots of encyclopedias, such as Britannica, contain assessments of famous individuals. It stays. Karajou 15:09, 5 May 2008 (EDT)
- I've never seen one, but will take your word. Are these generally understood to be editorial in nature? Should this be seen as Conservapedia's assessment of General Lee? PhilScheur 15:15, 5 May 2008 (EDT)
- They are more like a conclusive summary of the article itself. Karajou 01:02, 6 May 2008 (EDT)
Lee sure did live longer than I thought
It says that Congress approved war with Mexico in 1946 in which Lee fought as a Captain. Ignoring for the moment that I remember no such war, surely Lee would be a little dead by that point? I presume it's meant to say 1846. :) KarlJaeger 07:56, 21 June 2008 (EDT)
- Correction made; Lee saved from death! Karajou 14:40, 21 June 2008 (EDT)
Is there anyway to edit the page? I just want to generally clean up the article, add some meat, and clarify a couple sections. ----ToJones 20:40, 19 October 2008 (EDT)
