I grew up in New England, and so the history I encountered in local buildings, landmarks, etc., was relating to the American Revolution. But, a lot of the history down here in the south relates to other battles, as well as to the Confederate War. I'm seeing more and more stories like this one, wherein governments decide to erase history by removing statues, plaques, and changing the names of schools and other sites. I don't really understand what these people are hoping to accomplish. Are they also rewriting history in the text books?
