Stop desecrating the Madison cemetery

This petition had 99 supporters

We ask the Mayor and all communities of Madison, WI to halt any attempts to replace or remove the Confederate memorials, located on the Madison cemetery.

We believe that cemetery is the right place for these memorials,  which commemorate soldiers of the Confederate Army dying of wounds and diseases 150 years ago. Even if they fought on the wrong side, they are victims of the Civil War and nobody should accuse them of treachery or cowardice.

The foundation of our country relies in part on the respect and compassion to the victims of this war on both sides.
Remaining in the cemetery these memorials not only help us to remember suffering of the victims but also to realize that the lack of the respect and compassion ignites the hatred which could cost as much as future to American people.
