Washington National Cathedral will remove stained glass windows honoring Confederate Generals Robert E. Lee & Thomas ‘Stonewall’ Jackson

The Washington National Cathedral will remove two stained glass windows honoring Confederate generals as they are acting as a ‘barrier to our important work on racial justice and racial reconciliation’.

The windows being removed depict Confederate generals Robert E. Lee and Thomas ‘Stonewall’ Jackson commanding an army and looking through binoculars with a Confederate flag in one of the windows.

Removal of the windows has been in discussion since the racially charged shooting at a historic black church in Charleston, South Carolina, two years ago.
