The legacy of the Civil War is still visibly present in America today, less than 200 years later. Many Confederate monuments are still dominant in the South, including statues of Jefferson Davis, the former president of the Confederacy. Removing these statues has been a controversial measure and has provoked a lot of debate, throughout the US. Should these statues be removed or not? One argument is that they are necessary in order to move forward in achieving racial equality. Others believe that these monuments should remain in order for people to reconcile with the past and/or to promote cultural heritage.
