National Park Service: We’re Not Removing Confederate Statues

Finally, somebody is putting their foot down on anti-history zealots seeking to erase Civil War-era history from the minds of Americans.

The National Perk Service (NPS) has stated unequivocally that they will not ‘alter, relocate, obscure, or remove’ any confederate statues or memorials under their purview.

In an e-mail statement to the Media Research Center, the NPS said that the confederate monuments “represent an important, if controversial, chapter in our Nation’s history.”

They remain vital despite that controversy. Officials with the Park Service correctly stated that “A hallmark of American progress is our ability to learn from our history.”

Not erase it.

Via MRCTV:

Check and mate. Those offended by anything that could possibly, by any stretch of the imagination, be construed as “racist” can now chew on this.

The National Park Service (NPS) told MRCTV in an email that the agency will continue preserving and protecting all statues and monuments, whether they’re of the Confederate variety or not.

“Unless directed by legislation,” NPS said, “it is the policy of the National Park Service that these works and their inscriptions will not be altered, relocated, obscured, or removed, even when they are deemed inaccurate or incompatible with prevailing present-day values.”

The statement further reads that it is the NPS duty to “maintain(s) and interpret(s) monuments, markers, and plaques that commemorate and memorialize those who fought during the Civil War.”

Isn’t that what a park, a memorial site, or a museum is designed to be – an educational forum where Americans can learn about history, good and bad?

 

Perhaps now the NPS can make some upgrades to their historical parks and monuments, using the first quarter salary paycheck that President Trump donated to them earlier in the year.

That would really make liberal heads explode.

Oh wait, that already happened with Trump’s second quarter salary paycheck that he donated to repair the Antietam National Battlefield – site of the bloodiest one day battle in American history.

 

That particular $78,000 donation went toward restoring the information center and to help reinforce over 5,000 feet of civil war-style fencing.

The National Park Service website describes the importance of the Antietam site:

23,000 soldiers were killed, wounded or missing after twelve hours of savage combat on September 17, 1862. The Battle of Antietam ended the Confederate Army of Northern Virginia’s first invasion into the North and led to Abraham Lincoln’s issuance of the preliminary Emancipation Proclamation.

That, in a nutshell, is why these historical statues are valuable to America. They teach the history of the Civil War while showing why it was important to defeat slavery, and just how the Union and President Lincoln did it.

If we forget our history, we’ll be doomed to repeat it. Liberals will have nobody but themselves to blame for that.

Do you support the National Park Service decision to preserve confederate statues? Share your thoughts below!
