I am kin to Colonel Thomas Hart, who Senator Thomas Hart Benton was named after, as well as the artist by the same name. The mascot for the Covington Catholic High is a Kentucky Colonel. He is dressed in plantation garb. He has a mustache like the man in the photo. His kindred is wearing his hat. This is the famous Hart-Clay family who owned plantations and slaves. With the harassment and humiliation of a Native American in our Capital, the New Civil War has begun.
It is clear that white people are getting the message they own America, and, the Deed comes from Jesus Christ. This is a Holy Civil War. I am kin to General Robert E. Lee. I can assure you the Hart and Clay family were anti-Catholic, and staunch supporters of the Protestant religion. They made war on the Indians who adopted Daniel Boone in a ritual.
Honoring your history does not include a hundred sneering, self-righteous, Smirkers for Jesus, ganging up on a old man. They surrounded him and violated his space.
Doing penance is a huge part of the Catholic religion. I suggest a Colonel look-a-like be made to pass through a gauntlet, and touched by a coup stick. The Colonel will prostate himself on the Capital steps, then kneel while his mustache is shaved off. His plantation slave-master clothes will be burned. His blue hat will be cast on the ground and danced upon by a thousand Native Americans.
So be it!

On April 11, 1799, Clay married Lucretia Hart at the Hart home in Lexington, Kentucky. Her father, Colonel Thomas Hart, was early settler of Kentucky and a prominent businessman. Hart proved to be an important business connection for Clay, as he helped Clay gain new clients and grow in professional stature. Hart was the namesake and grand-uncle of Missouri Senator Thomas Hart Benton, and was also related to James Brown, a prominent Louisiana politician, and Isaac Shelby, the first Governor of Kentucky. Clay and Lucretia would remain married until his death in 1852; she lived until 1864, dying at the age of 83. She is interred with her husband in the vault of his monument at the Lexington Cemetery.
My adopted son, Hollis Lee Williams, was born in Louisville Kentucky, and is kin to Thomas Hart from whom the famous artist, Thomas Hart Benton, descends. My brother-in-law, Garth Benton, was a cousin of Thomas

Colonel Thomas Hart was the son of Thomas Hart and Susanna Rice Hart and the brother to John, Benjamin, David, Nathaniel and Ann.
“The mother of Lucretia Hart was Susanna, daughter of John Gray, Colonel in the Royal Army. Tradition says he opposed his daughter’s marriage on the grounds that Thomas Hart, her intended, was a rebel. He was, indeed, a bold and active rebel, a member of two Provincial Congresses of North America, a Colonel in the Revolutionary Army, and one of the principals of that daring and romantic enterprise, the Transylvania Land Company. In spite of her father’s disapproval the wedding of Susanna Gray and Thomas Hart, parents of Lucretia Hart, went off as planned.” (Simpson, Letters to)
