Do Not Erase Our Nations History

This petition had 1,241 supporters

Recently many towns throughout our great nation are demanding removal of any and all Confederate monuments. Many of these requests have come after the horrific event in Charlottesville, however this event was an isolated incident which does not call for the immediate removal of historical Confederate landmarks. I am especially concerned that in my own town, St Augustine, FL, the nations oldest city has had requests to remove two Confederate monoments from the downtown historic district. St Augustine, FL prides itself in preserving this nations history, and these Confederate monoments are just that, history. They are historical landmarks that remind us of this great nation's history, courage and bravery. We must not erase history just for the benefit of someone's feelings. Please sign this petition so that St Augustine will preserve all of America's history, and for some of us, our heritage.
