It only took a moment for the cultural jihadist to put the Confederate memorials in their sights for elimination from history. Apparently, another civil war will be fought to preserve the history of the first Civil War. Not so says Katie Lawhon who is the senior advisor for the park service when it comes to Gettysburg. According to her, all the memorials, Union and Confederate, are essential to telling the story of this battle and the bravery displayed under both flags. The deaths of 7000 should not be allowed to become a pawn in the war being waged by social justice warriors and their media minions. At some point, a stop must be put to this cultural cleansing that the left is demanding. The Union won the war and they got to write the history of that war, remember that next time you look at a history book.
As Written By AWR Hawkins for Breitbart:
As the American left pushes to purge the nation of Confederate statues and memorials, the National Parks Service is making clear the statues at Gettysburg battlefield are not going anywhere.
Katie Lawhon is the senior advisor for the park service when it comes to Gettysburg, and she says the statues “are important” and allow the park service to “historically and objectively tell the stories the monuments commemorate.”
Lawhon reassured the Reading Eagle that the statues would not be moved.
Barb Adams, who volunteers at Gettysburg, said watching the statues being vandalized and/or removed around the country breaks her heart. She said, “It’s just so upsetting to me—these men, these soldiers fought for what they believed in.”
Over 7,000 soldiers died at Gettysburg when Union Republicans and Confederate Democrats clashed July 1 to July 3, 1863. There are 1,300 monuments on the battlefield to tell the story, 30 of which depict the Confederate Democrats……..
