Men participate in the Historical Clothi

There was a vote taken in Charlottesville, Va to remove/relocate General Lee’s statue from the city’s (Charlottesville) square, to a location that the city council has 60 days to come up with. This conversation started when Councilor Wes Bellamy called for the statue of Lee to be removed, citing members of the community who feel it is culturally offensive and a symbol of white supremacy. In Richmond, Virginia our very own Monument Ave is decorated with Confederate War Heroes as well. Seeing that this city was once the Capital Of The Confederacy, there may be a bit more significance to their placement. However, the Confederacy rebelled, lost, and these statues still stand as a testament to their beliefs. Should any city in America memorialize some of the country’s “darkest” heritage on front street as if it were to be celebrated?
