President Monroe, for example, was originally buried in NYC Marble Cemetery. 27 years later he was reburied in historic Hollywood Cemetery in Richmond in President's Circle. President John Tyler is buried nearby. What they are wanting to do now is remove General Forrest's monument and his body and no telling where they are going to reinter him.

    The flag needed to come down. But it needed to be taken down voluntarily by the people who believe and cherish it not by force.

    Removal of the flag is nothing more than a power play. Solving the actual problem of prejudice, hate, and vengeance will be a part of human behavior for the foreseeable future. Forcing the removal or the fag will only reinforce these emotions. As for the people who enjoy forcing their beliefs and ideology on others they are just as emotionally sick. Any one who thinks removal of this flag will bring about love and harmony from the people who supported that flag need to read this poem. This is where the solution will come from not some flag or swastika being forcefully removed from everywhere.

    There have been people "fussing" about the flag for decades in SC. It comes up every election, at least, and there have been formal and more informal protests from time to time since at least the 1990s. The NAACP had a 15 year old boycott of the state related to the flag until last week. And the NCAA has had a ban on "predetermined" games (like the NCAA basketball tournament) in SC (and Mississippi) for well over a decade.

    And I think they've got the murder charges in good hands. I'm not sure what we're supposed to focus on.

    OK then close down every Gold's Gym while you're at it! The murderer wore a Gold's Gym shirt for cripes sake! Also notice the NCAA has not boycotted Georgia and their flag is the identical design of the First National flag of the Confederacy.

    Worse,

    I never had a US history teacher.

    But somehow the book named "The South Was Right" is bias free and should provide the "right" kind of history to me somehow?

    Just the title "The South Was Right" seems biased at worst, and only possibly "right" sometimes in the past at best (i.e., no longer is).

    I disagree that the US was suppose to be divided and weaker than what it currently is.
