My question would be" Do Yankees deserve new monuments?" The men who fought for the south deserve to be remembered by their respective states as much as the oh so saintly and unsullied men who served the Union.
Sounds like a different thread.
To ignore or lessen their courage or fortitude over some current slight by certain groups does them and history a disservice
You're not required to pay tribute too or agree with cause,but you can't ignore history just because it dose'nt give warm fuzzies and make you think all has always been right with the US.
Monuments aren't history books. If every confederate monument disappeared tomorrow not a single person would forget there were confederates who fought in the Civil War. If every confederate monument disappeared tomorrow, no one would be ignoring history.
