@Fluffkin it’s a bit of a tricky situation, a lot of the statues were put up rather late after the war, in the early 1900s and such, in order to cause fear in the local African-American population. Because the Civil War involved people fighting brother against brother, we don’t want to completely remove them, but the reason for those statues existing by and large is a sign of oppression and hate. I personally am In a more moderate camp, maybe taking the statues out of view and replacing them with placards describing the historical events that happened there.
