I think there are 3 of those. Toured one a few years back. Designed by John Wesley Jones?

The issue of slavery was danced around as early as the Declaration of Independence. It was a divisive issue at the Constitutional Convention.  It is woven through the fabric of the history of this country. It touched and tainted every thing. (The Seminole Wars were inflamed by the attempts to recapture runaway slaves from tribes where they were accepted as equals. It was not until the black members of the tribes were allowed to remain with their adopted tribes that peace with the Seminoles was possible.)

What we need is more education, more honesty, about the noble or impure motives of some of those in the past, and less knee-jerk reaction. Some provocative complimentary sculptures such as the 'Fearless Girl' would be a great addition to some of these old monuments.
