The Confederacy Under Attack-- Part 453: South Carolina Has Confederate Memorial Day

From the May 10, 2017, Google Alerts for Confederate.

**  SC employees get day off to honor Confederate dead.  (South Carolina)  (Win)  This is held on May 10, the day in 1863 when Confederate General Stonewall Jackson died of pneumonia.  South Carolina is one of six states to observe it.  However, the state agency-run Confederate Relic Room and Museum in Columbia remained open, as it should be.

I wonder if any of the Blacks and Whites who hate all-things Confederate so much took the day off or worked in protest.

**  New Orleans needs help moving Confederate statues -- and stopping extremists in the way.  (Washington Post editorial)  (Loss)  A very negative editorial accusing our side of making efforts to stop this disgraceful removal "By intimidation or open threat of violence, a motley band of white supremacists, Confederate sympathizers and self-appointed advocates of Southern heritage."

Gee, I wonder whose side these folks are on?
