Panel: West Point should rename Lee Barracks, nix KKK art | app

0

West Point cadets constantly pass historic reminders – from Grant Hall and Bradley Barracks to statues of Douglas MacArthur and Dwight Eisenhower overlooking the parade grounds.

Now a congressional commission is recommending changes to the legendary academy regarding buildings, locations and memorials that include the names or images of Robert E. Lee and other Civil War Confederate officers. . The commission also targeted towering bronze panels in a science building that depict dozens of historical events and people, including a hooded figure above the words “Ku Klux Klan.”
