In the March 30 issue, Lindsey Miguelez stated we should change the name of the Vance memorial because he owned slaves [“Remove Vance’s Name From Downtown Monument,” Xpress]. You can’t change or erase history — that was then, this is now.
Should we change the name of the Lincoln Memorial and the many other buildings and monuments that pay tribute to the great men and women of their time?
Let’s just appreciate the past and enjoy the advancements we as a nation have made.
