The Jan. 4 news article “Confederate graves, Aycock marker damaged” described vandalism on grave markers of Confederate soldiers who died in the Civil War.
These were men who fought for their country who were convinced they were fighting for a cause – no different from the Germans and Japanese who died during World War II.
Do we consider destroying grave sites for all those who fought against the United States in different wars? These Confederate soldiers died for their country’s honor, and now years later some fools believe they should decide that what they did was not to their liking.
What are these United States becoming?
Never miss a local story.
