Redefining Confederate History Month in Mississippi
Last month I reported on efforts to add an interpretive plaque to the Confederate soldier statue on the campus of the University of Mississippi. At the time I expressed some concerns as did others.
It was unfortunate that the school’s history department was not consulted, but today they released a statement that includes their own revisions to the interpretive plaque. It is appropriate that such a statement is released during the state’s official recognition of Confederate History Month.
