Monuments to traitors only reinforce our racist past. This is not a left or a right thing, but we should not be honoring or remembering those whose legacy denigrates whole races of people and symbols of oppression. The price you pay for being a traitor is that history does erase you. Given that the horrible white supremacy taught by these traitors still exists today, there’s no reason to celebrate or reinforce this. The South wasn’t punished enough, and even went on to assassinate our greatest leader, Abraham Lincoln. That act should not be celebrated.
