Leave the Confederate monuments alone and leave the extremists with nothing to use as a weapon. Many southerners fought the war between the states to protect their homes from being destroyed by invaders. Many towns were completely decimated of their young men. Let them honor their dead. Brining down old monuments just brings out the extremists who are looking for a fight. They also need to be accountable for their actions. Slavery was a terrible institution and it is a shame that so many died to put it to rest.
