NEW ORLEANS – Parts of the monuments to Jefferson Davis and P.G.T. Beauregard, which have been removed over the past week are currently sitting in a city maintenance yard next to piles of trash in the Desire neighborhood.
My position: I know for a fact I had relatives fighting for the Confederacy and I can pretty much bet with certainty that I had relatives fighting for the Union. The area I live in now sent more soldiers to the Union Army than it did to the Confederacy. I ain’t picking sides over a war that ended 152 years ago.
But….. I don’t give a damn if I was born and bred in Maine, history is history. Leave it the fuck alone.
