Southern Heritage Alerts: Confederate Statue Rebuilding Debate


Confederate Statue Rebuilding Debate

The marble statue was knocked off its pedestal on West Morehead Street and North Scales Street on May 23 after a van missed a traffic circle and crashed right into it. The driver of the van will be paying for the damage to the state through his insurance.

"Every time I would come back to the city, I would always see the solider. It would remind me of my relatives and my kin people that were hung in trees," said Judy Odds, who is against rebuilding the statue.

I wrote to the Mayor but received no response. I have no doubt that the statue will not be rebuilt - at least by any municipal agency. It will be up to the Southrons themselves. Hopefully, the women who stood for the South after the war will come forward and stand again - but there is no guarantee that the bravery and character of the past still remains. I'm really very glad I'm an old woman with no grandchildren. Sometimes it is time for things to come to an end. If the people of this country cannot get past this race card nonsense, they don't deserve to see the next decade of the 21st century.
