Tear Down Jeff Davis

but, Stuart, Lee & Jackson should stay in their honored places throughout Virginia.

Jefferson Davis was not a Virginian. He was one of the more significant agitators who caused the war.

The critical difference is that Lee, Jackson, Stuart & others such as A.P. Hill were... are Virginians, Virginians who sacrificed pretty much everything because they could not fight against their home & felt compelled to fight for her. People who think that Virginia seceded based on slavery should look at the timeline of the events that led to the war & the secession of each state that joined the Confederacy. Lee is & should be a favorite son of Virginia & Jackson is still beloved in a certain mountain church's black congregation.

    IF Trump declared war on California & Oregon refused to attack California thus effectively joining California… I don’t think anyone who would like to scram racist acrimony would have an issue with that, because it’s current & relevant… not to mention you just loathe Trump. Welcome to the early 1860’s.

    You spelled scream wrong: “scram racist acrimony?” – I don’t get it. Or maybe you meant your sentence in a way I am not seeing.

      Shit happens. You seem to have figured it out easily enough.
