Civil War II-- 468: About Those Southern Cities and Confederate Monuments

From the May 22, 2017, Google Alerts for Confederate.

**  New Orleans took down its Confederate monuments.  Will the rest of the South?  (Washington Post editorial)  (Loss)  In part they said removing monuments will go to "Deglorifying a past that deserves very little glory."

From their tone, I'd say we're also against the media.

OK, the Confederates were fighting against the terrorism of the abolitionists and a country that no longer supported the Southern states through its laws.

Here's hoping that other Southern cities will not go to the shame of (n)ew (o)rleans.

**  Effort to strip Confederate name from US-1 advances.  (Alexandria, Virginia)  (Loss)  The road is named for Jefferson Davis going through that city.
