Re: “Reconstruction

You are 27 years old! And through the course of your lifetime you have decided the loss of more Southern Americans' lives for the cause of independence from a country they felt no longer represented by, should be desecrated by a murderous, evil individual who attached himself to a flag that has been misrepresented by the misguided since the Democratic Party used it to defend segregation in the 1960's... It might be helpful to expand your knowledge of history beyond the news media. In 1860, Roughly 5% of southern land owners owned slaves and of them about a third were black slave owners. There were nearly 260,000 free blacks in the South at the time of the Civil War, which was more than were free in the North. Erasing symbols and monuments to history does not soothe any but the uninformed who are doomed to repeat the travails of the past if they are unaware of what has taken place before them.
