Re: “Fight Over Forrest Statue Isn't Over

I was born in Europe but learned a lot about the American Civil War. After reading about Nathan Bedford Forrest I found out that he was basically a good man. The original Klan organized to protect citizens from the disgruntled former slaves and other maruders was disbanded prior his death in 1877 as soon as the local authorities were able to protect its citizens . Yet, he is blamed for the second Klan revived in early 1900's and the third Klan created in 1950's which is preposterous. We in Europe preserve our historical monuments which makes our cities unique and beautiful. Also, we do not desecrate graves. I do not approve of violence of the far left and Antifa. We need to preserve our history and not to bow to ignorance.Stonewall Jackson was paying for Sunday school teaching blacks to read and write while campaigning in Shenandoah valley. If you say Black lives matter so White lives Matter.
