Column: Bad idea: Statue of black Confederate soldiers

Editor’s note: Two Upstate legislators last week proposed a State House monument honoring black soldiers who fought for the Confederacy. In September, Sens. Greg Gregory (R-Lancaster) and Darrell Jackson (D-Richland) proposed a statue of Robert Smalls, a slave who escaped with his family on a stolen Confederate ship, fought for the North and later represented South Carolina in Congress. Dr. Bartley’s column deals with both proposals.
