Letter to the editor: Fame is a part of city’s history
To the citizens of Salisbury: Fame is part of everyday life. For the thousands of North Carolinians who served in the Civil War, the statue is just a way of showing appreciation for them. Although the war was what it was families of Confederate soldiers still deserve to be remembered by Salisbury and the descendants of those soldiers. It has stood at that spot all these years and should remain there. To forcibly remove that statue without the vote of the people would be wrong. The history of the Civil War will not be changed or removed from the city of Salisbury by removing that statue.
