Should important figures of the Confederacy be memorialized with statues? Should the Confederate flag be flown proudly or included in state flags? Should war memorials for Confederate soldiers exist or be removed?
I think statues and memorials should stay, but have plaques and interactive signage explaining the Confederacy and what it stood for, and what it did. Common soldiers have little to no say in the fight so I’m more likely be in favor of memorializing their lost lives as opposed to the lives of Confederate leaders. The Confederate flag is the flag of slavers and traitors, and has no business being on any official government paraphernalia IMO. But just like a Nazi flag, individuals should be able to fly it if they want.
