Re: “Author of Heritage Protection Act Cautions City About 'Consequences'

Go to original sources about NB Forrest. He did a great deal for Civil Rights after the war. Read his address to a black organization, Independent Order of Pole Bearers Association (forerunner of the NAACP) on July 5,1875. It is unwise to allow people to move monuments based on one (often inaccurate) characteristic of a life. He was not the racist Lincoln was. Forrest certainly didn't believe in white supremacy. DaveClancy, where did you get the drunk and rape scenario? From the media? I read a reporter who described Lee and Jackson as "Leaders of the Secession movement." Lee didn't believe in secession or white supremacy. Jackson was teaching at VMI and teaching black people to read and write before the war, not leading secession.
