Poll: Who Is the Greatest Lee?

For indispensable reporting on the coronavirus crisis, the election, and more, subscribe to the Mother Jones Daily newsletter.

Over the weekend we learned that many schools named after Robert E. Lee would like to change their name but don’t want to pay for new signage. This means they need to find someone else named Lee to name their school after. But who?

We can help. Vote for your favorite Lee below, and I’ll post the results later today. This will give us a definitive list of the best Lees for schools to name themselves after.

UPDATE: Polling is closed. See the results here.

FACT:

Mother Jones was founded as a nonprofit in 1976 because we knew corporations and the wealthy wouldn't fund the type of hard-hitting journalism we set out to do.

Today, reader support makes up about two-thirds of our budget, allows us to dig deep on stories that matter, and lets us keep our reporting free for everyone. If you value what you get from Mother Jones, please join us with a tax-deductible donation today so we can keep on doing the type of journalism 2020 demands.
