Who were the heroes of Confederate monuments?

Confederate monuments are being torn down in the South. But do you really know the heroes of these Confederate monuments?

    A lot of these people voted for Trump and constantly tell everyone else, "We won, get over it." Well....The South LOST, get over it. Put your statues in a museum, so we can teach future generations how not to be. No one is forgetting. Remembering is key to not repeating.

    Hahaha! I'm sure if there were a statue of Richard III being torn down, none of these cousin fuckers would breathe a word.

    "The Confederates are apart of America's history" No. The Confederates were not Americans. They successfully succeeded from the Union and became their own country. We don't fly flags from other countries we've defeated, so why fly a flag from a failed country? The Civil War is a reminder, we should put these monuments in a museum, not proudly display them. (Before you say anything, I'm from Tennessee, a previously confederate state)

    Robert E. Lee was famously in favor of ending slavery, or at least the expansion of it. That's why he was originally a Union general before his home "country" of Virginia seceded. Jefferson Davis was a fuck. A mob in New Orleans attacked Union police. Wanna know why? The military governor, Benjamin Butler, ordered his soldiers to treat any woman not being respectful to his (invading) army, that she should be considered a "lady of the town" and treated as such. The Union did terrible things in New Orleans, and attacking the oppressors only made sense to them.

    They're being moved to museums or put in storage, not destroyed. Those people were garbage individuals but it's still part of history.

    Idea, put the statues on the other side of trumps proposed wall then tell people thay can have them back but they need to go get them.
