Jefferson Davis

Jefferson Davis statue removed. Under heavy police presence, crews began to take down the statue of former Confederate President Jefferson Davis in New Orleans early Thursday morning. It's the second Confederate monument to be removed after the New Orleans city council voted to remove four such landmarks back in 2015. After years of heated public debate and legal battles, recent court decisions paved the way for the city to relocate the four monuments. Early Thursday, pro-monument supporters held a vigil at the Davis statue and hoisted Confederate flags. People who want to see the monuments removed also gathered at the site and cheered at the sight of heavy trucks and a crane moving into place. Ref. CNN

Attached Image QUOTE
Jefferson Finis Davis[1] (June 3, 1808 - December 6, 1889) was an American politician who was a Democratic U.S. Representative and Senator from Mississippi, the 23rd U.S. Secretary of War, and the President of the Confederate States of America during the American Civil War. He took personal charge of the Confederate war plans but was unable to find a strategy to defeat the more populous and industrialized Union. His diplomatic efforts failed to gain recognition from any foreign country, and at home, the collapsing Confederate economy forced his government to print more and more paper money to cover the war's expenses, leading to runaway inflation and devaluation of the Confederate dollar.

Yes, this is our history, but we aren't hiding our history or trying to rewrite it. Not our we trying to belittle the efforts of the Confederacy. Rather, a statue of an individual venerates that individual. Davis led the effort to split the Union to keep slavery. He doesn't deserve veneration.

Davis Jefferson

I feel the more we remove things that deal with our history the more people will try to forget about it. We save things from history so that we as a people can learn from it and move on. We can not change the past and therefore we should not dwell on it. But to remove the very things that can remind of of or colored past to help us keep moving on is not going to help at all. I would think that any statue, plague or memorial of Jefferson Davis is left alone for all to learn.
