Confederate Memorial in Pensacola Vandalized...

...Celebrations Underway at XRoads?

The Confederate Memorial in Lee Square, Pensacola, was vandalized overnight. Spray painted with "Confed Lives Don't Matter". Whoever did it at least spelled "matter" right, and knew to put an apostrophe in "don't".

Tony and Dorrian Vance, who've been at the forefront of heritage defense in Pensacola, discovered the vandalism this morning and called the city to report. Parks and Recreation Department were johnny-on-the-spot and got most of the paint off. I think removing the rest will be a delicate operation to keep from damaging the granite.

The quick response makes me wonder if Parks and Recreation has more than a little experience with vandalism and with removing spray paint from granite and marble... Presumably,the sooner the paint is cleaned off, the better the cleaning job will be. Now it's time for the city to invest in a couple of cameras for 24-hour surveillance of the monument. You think they will? Ha...

In any case, a big thank you to the Vances and to the City of Pensacola Parks and Recreation Department.

Confederate Heritage matters.
