Kentucky city moving 2 Confederate statues

From Lexington Herald-Leader,

"Kentucky's second largest city is moving statues of two Confederate statues on Tuesday evening."

Those 2 are "John Hunt Morgan" and "John C. Breckinridge".

John Hunt Morgan (June 1, 1825 ? September 4, 1864) was a Confederate general in the American Civil War, and the other John was "was an American lawyer, politician, and soldier. He represented Kentucky in both houses of Congress and became the 14th and youngest-ever Vice President of the United States, serving from 1857 to 1861" according to Wikipedia.

The statues are being moved into storage.

It could be a good opportunity to think about "cause of the civil war in the united states" and checking in what was really going on. We all can learn from history. But some says only thing we can learn from history is that "we never learn from history".
