Attention Alumni: Sul Ross State University:
It is our duty to raise old billy hell with Pete P. Gallego (now El Presidente), the Board of Regents, The town’s people including the clubs–Loins, Kiwanas (sp?), American Legion, et al. Raise hell with anybody you know that could have any influence. We can’t let this happen.
After you read the article you will realize that education is a big part of the problem. General Ross did NOT fight for the preservation of Slavery. The war was NOT about slavery, etc.
If you need to, educate yourself by going to: https://www.amazon.com/s?k=the+real+lincoln+by+thomas+dilorenzo&crid=OFHLZQSPAUTX&sprefix=The+real+lincoln%2Caps%2C209&ref=nb_sb_ss_i_1_16
and selecting most any of the books. I would suggest DiLorenzo’s “The Real Lincoln”, “Lincoln Unmasked”, and the Kennedy Brothers “The South was Right.”
Again we can’t let this (the most lied about part of American History) happen!

“It’s hard to be proud of the school you are representing when you play…
