Confederate Statue Was Misunderstood

Dear Editor:

As I write, they are removing the memorial statue to Confederate soldiers at Eastville.

It was said this memorial celebrated slavery and Jim Crow. NO. The memorial celebrates the cause for which they fought and sacrificed so much … independence.

It is a sad day, and much to be lamented, that today in Eastville, they are removing a memorial to a cause and a history which they do not know or understand.

It is as Orwell said, “Those who control the past control the future. Those who control the present control the past.” George Orwell, “1984”
