74 – A Defense of Our Monuments, Excluding the Confederacy

Our nations monuments are under assault – both physical and figuratively. This speaks to a broader backlash towards our nation history, and some of the ills of our founding, that in many ways and to many people, has yet to be rectified. We cannot erase our history, nor can we tear it down and thrust it into the depths. We must wrestle and reconcile with its meaning. Jefferson, and Washington are one thing – though the monuments to the treasonous Confederacy are entirely different matter. Our history is complicated, but the ways in which many voices are arguing we should deal with it are even more so.
