In the months since we held a "Save Lee Park" rally in Charlottesville and spoke at the Charlottesville City Council meeting last night, much has transpired .
Sadly, we regret to report that Mr. George "Tex" Wells passed away last week after a courageous battle with cancer. The last time most of us saw Tex was at the "Save Lee Park" rally in Charlottesville in April. He was ill then and very weak...and should not have been standing out in the sun, but he INSISTED on coming and standing up for Robert E Lee, against what he felt was a huge injustice.
A Vietnam Veteran, Tex was well known for his portrayal of Gen Robert E Lee, and was a tireless advocate of the general and a fierce defender of our Cause.
The South has lost a true hero, and many of us have lost a dear friend.
Thank you, Tex. The general is safe. We won't let the miscreants get their hands on him or dishonor his sacred memory. Go rest high, Sir!
