Author: Removing Confederate Relics, Statues Threatens the Preservation of History

An interesting insight by a Southern native and author:

A Georgia native who recently penned a book that pays homage to Southern history and culture said that current efforts to eradicate from campuses any and all relics of the Old South or the Confederacy are misguided and “present a danger to the preservation and study of history.”

Chris Queen, a freelance writer, University of Georgia alum, and author of “Football, Faith, and Flannery O’Connor: A Love Letter to the South,” recently spoke to The College Fix regarding the flurry of demands by college students and faculty to remove from campuses reminders of the Old South – such as statues and flags.
