    Sam Hanna Jr.: Presentism at its worst

    In 1961, General Middleton sent a letter to a man in Texas, describing LSU's efforts to segrate white students from black students, which was the law of the land in Louisiana at that time.

    Plaques commerating General Middleton's service and his bust were also removed.

    Oh good grief, an American hero if there ever was one. He also saw service in WW1 as a Battalion Commander at the 2nd Battle of the Marne and the Meuse - Argonne offensive and became a Regimental Commander. He became a full Colonel at the age of 29, the youngest officer of that rank in Europe at that time.

    Those that suggest if historical figures significant to our culture had feet of clay, they should be removed are not acting like Christians. Perhaps they might consider the log in their eyes?
