The argument that this is history and we learn from is essentially bullshit. You do not lift reprehensible people on a pedestal, for the only thing learned from the glorification of these traitors, racists and slavers is that far too many intend on whitewashing their crimes against humanity and this behavior is something to be admired. We should be honoring the true heros of this county's history. Install more statues of Presidents that never owned slaves like the first Abolitionist President John Quincy Adams. Give people historical figures worthy of the admiration that deserve being placed on a pedestal.
