As a Civil War writer I have very mixed feelings about this issue.
James M. Ridgway, Jr.

“… right or wrong brave men on both sides fought and died for what they believed was just …”


Bravery doesn’t justify fighting for a bad cause.

Brave German soldiers invaded the Soviet Union and caused three million deaths.

A memorial to those who died might be appropriate, but not a monument to the cause for which they fought.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
