Letter: Statue reflects the sadness of war
While we think the Southern states were wrong to secede from the Union, we would like to see our statue on Innes Street saved.
It doesn’t seem to us to be a statue that glorifies the Confederacy. Rather, we see it as a portrayer of the sadness of war and the senseless death of young men. We would hope that if it has to be moved, someone could come up with a place to put it. We would not want to offend anyone, but it is a beautiful work of art , and we feel. It would be a shame to demolish it.
