A Hearing on Monuments in Richmond

Last night, in Richmond, Virginia, there was a hearing about what to do about the city’s Confederate monuments.

A lively time was had by all … or at least by many.

Not everyone is pleased by the result. Some observers believe this is a futile exercise. Others were deeply moved.

    Tear them all down and scrap them.

    Is the demolition and rewritting of History a good thing?

    I had a German Engineer renting a property and I was surprised to learn that he was taught the events from 1890s to 1945 as one event and 1914 to 1945 as one conflict.
    It seems Germany in 1890s set the world standards in Chemistry, Pharmaceuticals, Synthetic materials and Engineering.
    After WW1, entire factories were movd to France and England.
    The Germans were denied Artillery by the Versailles Treaty so they took Oberth and von Braun hobby and made rockets and missiles.
    The human spirit regardless of motive will not be denied.
    Well, I wonder how th American Revolution is taught in England and France.

    As to American History, it is written with variations on our hearts.
