Keep the Confederate Monuments on Bastrop County Property

0 have signed. Let’s get to 500!

Let’s demand that we keep the Confederate Monuments standing on the grounds of the Bastrop County Courthouse, in Bastrop Texas.

The monuments are engraved with two crossed confederate flags on one side and the words of a Confederate war song “Lest we Forget” on the other.  They were established by the United Daughters of the Confederacy in 1910 to honor Confederate soldiers from Bastrop County who fought in the war against civil rights.  These monuments were set on the lawn to memorialize the history of the confederacy.  As it was stated, to cherish the heritage of southern blood and southern chivalry. 

Confederate monuments were built and given places of honor in public spaces.  People are thinking these are used to idolize White Supremacy, they are far from that.

The intent of this petition is to request that Bastrop County Judge Paul Pape and the commissioners of the court:  Mel Hamner, Clara Beckett, Mark Meuth, and Donna Snowden, keep all Confederate monuments from all County properties in Bastrop County; including but not limited to, the two confederate monuments currently located on the Bastrop County Courthouse grounds. These monuments are a representation American history.

Join with me today and pledge to support to keep all Confederate monuments and symbols from the greater Bastrop County communities.
