Civil War II-- 489: The Northern-Made Confederate Statues

From June 16, 2017, Google Alerts for Confederate.

**  The North's Role in Supplying the South with Confederate Monuments.  (From Hyperallergic site)  (Win)

Northern companies through mass production supplied a lot of these Confederate statues and monuments that so many want taken down these days.  One company in Connecticut, the Monumental Bronze Company , supplied a whole lot of them.

Their zinc, white bronze statues, were especially popular.  One is in Goldsboro, N.C., and placed there in 1883.

The tone of the memorials was not just to honor the heroes of the Confederacy, but also the common soldier.

I Guess Some of this Anti-Confederate Hatred needs Now To Be Directed Northward.  -Old Secesh
