Beauvoir wants Confederate monuments
Beauvoir has expressed an intent to take any Confederate statue(s) that any city or jurisdiction has decided to take down. We believe the Beauvoir campus is the most appropriate, contextual location for these monuments. We ask the cooperation of any and all fair minded people to help with Beauvoir’s acquisition of these statues. Our vision is to include the monuments as part of our historical narrative at Beauvoir. By expressing our desire for these monuments, we are in no way defending or condoning slavery, which was and is an evil institution that has no color or creed and has existed since the dawn of time. Our core mission is to educate and commemorate the ideals of our rich heritage as Americans and particularly as Southern Americans. We have a rich history which encompasses much more than the events of the Civil War, but the War accentuated the character and integrity of the South.
