Save the Confederate Monument to the Dead- This monument does not glorify the Confederacy. It is only a monument to soldiers sent to die through drafts or threats of drafts by what they believed to be their legitimate government.The Confederacy instituted the first draft and in fact had three. If so many were volunteering to fight, they would have needed no draft.

In what draft were soldiers ever told if they did not agree with the cause for which a government was sending them to fight, they could just stay home.

The people of the distant past should not be judged using 21st Century hindsight.
