This is 2013, why does Baltimore City own a park named after Robert E. Lee? I understand that there is more to Lee's life than just being a confederate general but he was a very important part of the Confederacy.
Is this disrespectful to all the Union soldiers that lost life and limb in the Civil War? Should the park be named after someone else like Herman Williams, Harriet Tubman or another Maryland trailblazer?
Robert E. Lee Memorial Park is a park in Baltimore County, Maryland, located near the intersection of Falls Road and Lake Avenue, adjacent to the Falls Road Light Rail Stop. Though the park is located outside the limits of Baltimore city, it is owned by the city. However, it is currently leased to Baltimore County, Maryland.
