Public Comments for: HB1170 - Appomattox, Town of; amending charter, election and appointment of officers.
Please save all of Virginias history, by leaving our monuments intact and historic memorabilia on display. The Commonwealths history should not offend anyone who takes the time to understand it and respect the changes that occurred. For instance Virginias State park history, the Commonwealth’s Roadways or the quaint country town with the history of its namesake and deep rooted genealogy of the people who lived there. The Monuments are no different, they speak of times gone by, appreciated by some, disliked by others. Maybe they are a symbol that change is needed and to remind us to do so, whatever the cause, our history brought us to this day in time. We need to respect each other’s heritage and appreciate how each native Virginian helped to shape all of us. Respectfully, Alan Crawford
This is submitted regarding the destruction and removal of monuments in Virginia. Dear sirs, It is high time to restore the damage the Visigoths, who in the recent bacchanalia of destruction, attempted to erase the history of this great Commonwealth. You are regarded by many of its citizens as a breath of fresh air in this new administration, It is my hope that you take a careful look at undoing the horrendous damage wrought to our monuments . I might remind you of the obvious; nobody ever voted to undertake this vandalism. Do not allow the actions of corrupt persons, acting on their own volition, to destroy our history and our heritage. Respectfully, Maj. Bruce Wallace Raich, USMC (ret)
