Battle is looming for the Sons of the Confederate Veterans

The Sons of Confederate Veterans sent out an action alert to members Tuesday night regarding Georgia House Bill 760, which would require the Georgia state agency that oversees Stone Mountain to maintain an appropriate, inclusive and historically accurate memorial to the Civil War.

Unfortunately, it also appears to remove any restrictions on government agencies from making changes to memorials so long as they are historically accurate and appropriate. This paves the way to strip the Confederates from the memorial, and put up Union soldiers, or Negro regiments, thus fundamentally changing Stone Mountain.

One more step in removing Southern history, and Southern pride.
