Confederate monuments are being removed around the country under pressure from those who say they honour a regime that enslaved African-Americans. The pace has increased, however, in the wake of last weekend’s confrontation at a white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, led to violent clashes and the death of a 32-year-old counter-protester. The petition was started by Matthew Evans , who asks President Donald Trump, Vice President Mike Pence and the U.S. Supreme Court to sign a bill into law protecting these monuments, all military monuments from removal.
Confederate monuments may be coming down across the country. A majority of Americans say they should remain in place as historical symbols, a new poll found. Overall, 62 percent of Americans think the statues should stay, while just 27 percent believe they should be removed because they’re offensive to some people, according to the PBS NewsHour, NPR and Marist Poll.
These monuments are a reminder of what our country had to go through to become whole again. Many of these monuments are not only in dedication to the men who served in the Confederacy but they also served in the US army pre-civil war. It’s important to save these monuments for future generations to see these monuments and learn about them and the men who gave everything for a several causes. These were brave men, good men and religious men. President Trump, Vice President and the US Supreme Court to stop the purge of our American History in our cities and towns across the south.

The vandalism of Confederate Monuments comes three days after a “Unite the Right” rally turned deadly in Charlottesville, Va. Alt-right demonstrators, white nationalists, and Neo-Nazis were protesting the planned removal of a statue of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee.
