Why monuments matter
Most American have forgotten the horrors of the American Civil War. An estimated 625,000 men died in that bloody war. Families were ripped apart. The nation was almost destroyed.
Despite this animosity and bitterness, the country dedicated itself to unification and healing. The South was not treated as conquered territory, but as fellow Americans. Confederate soldiers and generals were esteemed by both the North and the South. For over 150 years, no one thought of trying to desecrate the Southern heritage.
Now the ADL (Google's official censors) is spearheading the effort to topple our monuments and destroy the memory of who we are. This will not end well.
