You can take down statutes, but not take away the inhumanity of Order 11

This blog is about a man who is angry about the removal of Confederate statutes. His family genealogy includes Confederate soldiers and he feels that those family members deserve to be honored. The author talks about his grandfather who was born during the Civil War and the atrocities the grandfather claimed were committed by Union soldiers.

Key Takeaways:

  • Author of the blog, Jack Hackley, is upset about removal of a confederate monument from Forrest Park located in the state of Missouri.
  • Critics of the monument claim it was removed due to the negative depiction it potentially presents, such as: slavery, racism, and white supremacy.
  • According to Hackley,the monument is a memorial to the lives lost against the inhumane treatment by the Union Soldiers during the Civil War.

“If Governor Greitens wants to call a worthwhile special session, he should get a law passed to prohibit the removal of any Confederate statue or monument in the state of Missouri.”
