Re: “Is Monument Avenue Set in Stone?

The fact remains that the war was not fought over freeing the slaves. If it had been Lincoln would not have denied it over and over and over again. His intention was to keep the union intact by whatever means were necessary. Virginia as well as your other border states such as North Carolina Tennessee Arkansas left because of Lincoln's decision to bring back the original seceding states by force. That is clearly evident in reading those states orders of secession.
As for Dylan roof he clearly stated in his manifesto that what got him all worked up was the George Zimmerman case not the Confederacy. He also had South African flags as well. NAACP had been attacking Confederate flags long before this incident. It was a big moneymaker for them.
The fact is I could show dozens of photos of US military personnel in various wars carrying a Confederate flag where there were no black people around to offend. The two highest-ranking generals killed in World War II were the sons and great-grandson of Confederate generals.
Lincoln supported the Crittenden amendment which would have granted slavery in perpetuity if the South return to the union. He said Blacks were referred to whites and never changed his opinion want to send them all back to Africa. 17 American presidents owned slaves including Ulysses S Grant.
I think a fair trade would be allowed to take them down and no more soldiers that are white and from the South be deployed in any dangerous sounds at those that despises go fight in those war zones. If or not to the sacrifices of my ancestors in World War II there would be no black people left in America.
At no point did Confederates chop off people's heads put them in gas chambers or anything like that. The biggest loss of life for Blacks were in the contraband camps where they kept freed slaves hundreds of thousands died and in the New York draft riots. Just a little real history for some of the historical morons
