VMI board unanimously decides to remove statue of General ’Stonewall’ Jackson

The VMI’s board has voted to remove a statue of Confederate Gen. Thomas ’Stonewall’ Jackson that currently remains in front of the historic barracks on campus. Spokesman Bill Wyatt said that the board also voted for a number of other reforms towards addressing issues of diversity. Civil War general Jackson was well known for owning slaves and fought to defend their slavery.

I wonder if they will stop teaching about his Shenandoah campaign as well... military history and tactics should be equally sanitized.

This is great news. Probably the best of this bad year is getting rid of all those confederate statues.

Stonewall was an admirable man, a teacher with impeccable ethics. The Union healed from this tragic scar. The dividers today want to destroy the concept of healing our differences.

I’m so glad that answering for the past is as simple as removing statues. So easy so nice!

What a tragedy...removing a statue of someone so closely associated with VMI. Another victim of a society gone mad.

They should have a plague there explaining why it was removed and when. Erasing history is a bad idea because when we know how evil people were we can attempt to avoid repeating those evils in our own lives.
