President Donald Trump on Monday said that he might deliver his speech accepting the Republican Party's nomination for the presidency at either the White House or the historic battlefield of Gettysburg in Pennsylvania.


The choice of Gettysburg would be particularly interesting from a historical perspective, as it was the site of the key battle that sent the Confederacy on the road to defeat.

Many of the president's Twitter followers noted this fact, while also noting that the president himself has regularly defended the honor of Confederate generals who waged war against their own countrymen in order to keep Black Americans enslaved.
