Going to add to #1 because our Eastern European friend probably doesn't know about the Jim Crow era. Jim Crow laws were enforcing segregation and basically anti-black people. This was also the time when lynching was common (hanging people).

The statues had little to do with the actual generals - how many Union generals (opposite side of the Civil War) have statues? How many generals from WW2 or WW1 or any other war have statues?

I'd bet that the statues of the Confederate Generals outnumber all other wars combined, or come close. And they were traitors to the US. It should be obvious that they have little to do with history, and a lot to do with intimidation and white supremacy.

Canadians are always welcome. Would you pretty please invade the US and save us from ourselves?
