Re: “Greenspace Looks to Recreate Parks Formerly Home to Confederate Statues

>>Because people have been out of those spaces for a while, they have to be trained to come back in, Huston said.<<

We're old statues that were over a hundred years old really that ofensive? Is history really that bad? I see nothing wrong with relocating things to a place where they can be celebrated and admired once again... But I'm hoping we're not setting a precedent that the next statues to come down or be relocated will be MLK statues... Not good!

Re: “Memphis Greenspace Clears Out Rest of Confederate Memorabilia from Memphis Park

I have no problem in preserving history, statues and monuments,etc but if the city does not want them there then why not move them into a place where they can be celebrated and interpreted? It's not like we're melting down monuments or statues... They are just merely being relocated to a place where they can still be viewed and interpreted and admired... So why so much animosity in doing this? Very confused northerner who donates to the Gettysburg Foundation on a yearly basis.
