U.S. Talibanners try to destroy Confederate history and memory

Wording on the Confederate Soldiers and Sailors Monument at Gettysburg (dedicated 1965). "A memorial to soldiers and sailors of the Confederacy--South Carolina, Florida, Georgia, Texas, Arkansas, North Carolina, Maryland, Missouri, Tennessee, Virginia, Louisiana, Alabama, Mississippi. Heroic defenders of their country. Their fame shall be an echo and a light unto eternity."

That is until the Democrats try to reinstate the bitterness of the post-war reconstruction era and kill their memories again.


Daughters of the Confederacy put this statue on Johnson’s Island prisoner of war cemetery.  Let’s hope the Talibanners don’t come after it.
