Save Kentucky's Civil War Historic Monuments

This petition had 2,718 supporters


We, the undersigned, are petitioning Kentucky Governor Matt Bevin to declare that no historic monuments, specifically those pertaining to the Civil War, located in the Commonwealth of Kentucky be allowed to be removed, relocated or destroyed.

The removal of our monuments will not erase history, nor will it end racism, biggotry or hatred; for those things reside in the hearts of man.

The madness must stop. Ask yourself this: If we allow the removal of our monuments in the Commonwealth, what is next? Do we allow the offended persons (or groups) to destroy many of our beautiful state parks simply because Civil War battles were fought on those grounds? Do we allow those grounds to be bulldozed? Or do we, as proud citizens, stand up and say "No"? 

We implore you, Governor Bevin, to protect Kentucky's history, and all of her historic monuments and symbols. Please act on this petition, using the authority granted to you by the laws of the Commonwealth. Save our Civil War monuments and statues by saying "No, the Commonwealth of Kentucky will not succomb to mass hysteria as this will not solve the problem of racism, nor will it serve any meaningful purpose."

We ask this of you with the utmost respect, and hope you will act to save these monuments.  Thank You.
