Preserve and protect Civil War monuments
JAY WYSS. RICHMOND.
I wholeheartedly disagree with much of Correspondent of the Day Bill Warhop’s letter. His false narrative of the cause of the American Civil War fits well with the revisionist history espoused by the perpetually aggrieved but ignores the historical facts.
I do agree with Warhop on one matter: The Monument Avenue statues must be removed. Not so they can be used to reinforce the liberal agenda but so they can be preserved safely for future generations to appreciate. The city of Richmond no longer can or is willing to preserve and protect these works of art and commemoration. Richmond does not deserve to have these monuments within the city limits.
I am certain that there are numerous locations that would welcome and protect these monuments and appreciate their beauty and what they stand for: self-sacrifice in the face of naked aggression.
