Ryan Zinke: Activists Shouldn’t ‘Rewrite History’ by Removing Confederate Monuments

by Amanda House  –  5 Jul 2017

SHARPSBURG, Maryland – U.S. Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke told Breitbart News that “history is important” and it should not be rewritten when asked about those attempting to destroy or remove Confederate monuments while touring Antietam National Battlefield on Wednesday in western Maryland.

Zinke explained the significance of history, gesturing to the area around him, “As an example, what did the battle of Antietam bring us? One is that it was the deadliest battle in the history of our country. But also, one could argue successfully, it also brought the Emancipation Proclamation.”

“So there is goodness that came out of this battlefield,” he continued. “Recognizing that two sides fought, recognizing [the] historical significance of a change in our country… so I’m an advocate for recognizing history as it is. Don’t rewrite history. Understand it for what it is and teach our kids the importance of looking at our magnificent history as a country and why we are who we are.”

  1. Why don’t they remove Albert Pikes statue in Washington? He was the founder of the KKK and was a satanist as well…

  2. As a yankee, it might be said I do not have qualifications to argue one way or another on this subject, but have living in the south most of my years, I say- LEAVE THE DAMN STATUE’S WHERE THEY ARE. You can not erase history !
