The Confederacy Under Attack-- Part 374: Lynching Memorial in South Carolina

From the October 15 and 21, 2016, Google Alerts for Confederate.

**  Group sues University of Mississippi to remove contextualization plaque in front of Confederate monument.  (SCV)  The group is the Mississippi Division of the Sons of Confederate Veterans.

Personally, if the contextualization gets the racist groups off our backs, I'm ok with the revised plaque. Anybody that doesn't know that the slavery question was definitely involved in the formation of the Confederacy sure doesn't know much.

**  Lynching memorial rises near revered Confederate sites.  (Abbeville, South Carolina)  (Win)  The lynching of blacks in the postwar South never should have happened.  It is a sad part of our history and I think it is only right that there should also be a monument to it.
