There's plenty of history books about the civil war. Why do we need statues?

Trump said George Washington was a slave owner which got them riled up again and now they want to tear down the Washington Monument. George Washington and Thomas Jefferson were slave owners and Muhammad was a slave owner. The Great Pyramid built by Khufu circa 2500 BC was a slave owner. Send them to bumfuck Egypt and let them tear down the Great Pyramid of Giza.

edit: Big City people who never did this or done that are causing the current mess. Big City turn me loose and set me free.

A library is where the homeless use the head and take a bird bath. A rich business owner was caught yesterday in COSI (children science and industry museum) in Columbus, Ohio exposing his private parts to young girls and boys. Maximum sentence is 240 days because he has no prior record.

edit: The infamous piss drinker was caught multiple times but there is no law in Ohio against drinking piss and he paid big money to young boys to piss in his cup which he relished. The famous piss drinker is still on the loose.
Thanks from Hollywood

This is a foolish post. The difference is evident. Washington and Jefferson were slave holders. They also fought a revolution that gave birth to our nation. Lee and his ilk rejected President Lincoln's Emancipation Proclamation and set forth to destroy this country in an effort to keep slaves in bondage.. You don't need a statue to understand basic history.

While I understand the importance of a population having a good understanding of its history, what further understanding of its history can be accomplished by a nation when it views a mere statue?

Thanks from catus felis and Clara007

I climbed the Washington Monument and it is 555' tall with a pyramidium on top made of aluminum which was more expensive than gold back in the day. The Washington Monument was started before the Civil War and Georgia white granite goes one third up and Vermont white granite is the rest of it. Vermont white granite is a darker shade of white.

edit: History will set you free and the huge bronze statue on top of the capitol building is called the Statue of Freedom but looks like Athena, the ancient Greek goddess of war and knowledge.
