Most threatened Southern historic sites

A recent article in the Wilmington, North Carolina StarNews online (Link below) promotes saving several historic buildings and structures in this area, but it ignored threats to the more important sites in Southern American history: the many locations and monuments commemorating the gallant fight against the invasion and occupation by Northern armies—what true Southerners call Lincoln’s War against Southern State’s independence.

After that federal concocted and unnecessary destruction of lives and the Southern economy, patriotic groups such as the Daughters of Confederate Veterans funded and commissioned monuments and preserved sites to honor their brave ancestors who sacrificed so much. For 150 years these historic places have been cared for and respected by both Southern and Northern people.

Now, suddenly, they are threatened with removal and destruction.

Cultural Marxists and hate-groups demand all vestiges of Confederate history be purged from the landscape; a common tactic in Communist regimes to deny the truth and erase it from memory—individual mind control so they can disavow the past and replace it with their evil collectivist, delusional, utopian view of the future.

Southern scholars at the Abbeville Institute understand this insidious movement and stand against it with reason, facts and historical perspective.

At the site below those with open, reasoning minds can find essays on the subject of “political correctness,” the Marxist-inspired tactic to prevent future generations from knowing the truth about their history.
