  1. I have a serious problem with all of this. First of all ,do these people think by tearing down these statues they can rewrite history? These were brave men that served in the Confederacy. A majority when you read their memoirs and diaries were not fighting to preserve the institution of slavery. They were fighting for the sovereignty of the individual states. To govern what went on in the state. The majority of the soldiers in the confederacy were not slave holders. The officers in the confederate army most had brilliant careers in the Union army. Robert E Lee lead the forces at Harper’s Ferry to retake the arsenal there. I am sorry if people will get upset by this post but all these protests. All the removals of flags. Will not change anything. This was a terrible time in the history of our country. The men fighting on both sides fought and died for what they believed in. Next are they going to dig up the dead and remove their grave stones?
