Letter: Confederate statues belong in museums

Mr. Mazucca was correct in pointing out flaws in Americans honored by many (“No shortage of hypocrites,” Monday, Sept. 4). While these flaws are serious and should be noted at any statues honoring them, there is a difference between these Americans and honoring Confederate heroes with public statues.

The Confederate leaders were treasonous to the United States and fought to perpetuate the cruel injustice and barbarism of slavery. Their statues should be moved to museums of the Civil War and their participation fully explained.
