The proposed ‘Rise of Camp Curtin’ has sparked a controversial debate about the future relocation of confederate monuments.
In response to the recent removal of confederate monuments, a new idea is being entertained for the future of historic monuments in the City of Harrisburg, Pennsylvania.
Lewis Butts On Removing Historic Civil War Monuments:
“It’s actually wrong to remove the historical monuments, because it erases identity.
It results in a disservice to society, since people won’t realize how far they have progressed.
If all memories are washed away, we will never acknowledge the existence of our realities.
In Camp Curtin, we plan to resurrect its rich history, and the economic development of the distressed neighborhood.”
Butts has faced opposition from his political opponent, Mayor Eric Papenfuse who has formed the resistance in Harrisburg against Civil War history that highlights African-Americans.
In a press release today, Lewis Butts alludes to the rise of Camp Curtin and his dissatisfaction with Harrisburg current Mayor.
“My objective is to smash Papenfuse… tear him down like a Confederate Monument… The Rise Of Camp Curtin”
The debate continues as one response suggested confederate monuments are inappropriate in Harrisburg, PA, and a more suitable location may be the the Capital’s West Shore, or Gettysburg, PA.
Lewis Butts recently called into M.O.A.B. Radio, when he publicly disavowed AntiFA, and he advocated for the preservation of Civil War History.
