I got the name of the group wrong. It's not "sisters" it's United daughters of the Confederacy.

Also I feel like this should have been in debate. I'm going to leave it here and just ask that everyone keeps it civil towards each other. Feel free to make participation trophy jokes though.

Obviously, we shouldn't celebrate Confederate dickheads, but I think having some sort of memorial of it to remind us of our failings is a good thing, IMO.  People tend to forget about the fuck ups of their own ancestors.

There is a memorial to the whole event that has statues for both sides, the battlefield in Gettysburg. It's basically an outdoor museum to the events.

With the monuments being taken down you have to consider that they were part of an attempt at historical revisionism in the first place. They were put up by the sisters of the Confederacy 50 years after the events of the civil war as an attempt to romanticise the time period and as a possibly fuck you to the shifting of equality that lead to the civil Rights movement. They were basically the precursor to the Confederate flag being used to denounce desegregation.

I misunderstood your first paragraph because I didn't realize they ran the first episode of DuckTales all day.

Plus there are still remains of the dragons so there is physical proof to back the historical text.

Welp Trump walked back on his condemnation of the guys chilling with the swastikas saying they're some good ones on that side and defending the tiki torch late night protest. This is so crazy The Onion dropped the satire and just did this.

Columbus would be targeted first before we get there.

Agreed, though he already has been, at least in NYC.

Dude did some pretty brutal shit.

yeah it will be funny watching everyone claim history is being rewritten if they start pulling down his monuments when the story we're told about him is highly revised and edited.
