WTF?

I am reading my morning NYT. . . I never knew there was a statue of Jefferson Davis in the rotunda of the US capitol?

Jesus H. Christ. . . Seriously?

1. Indeed there is...

This statue of Jefferson Davis was given to the National Statuary Hall Collection by Mississippi in 1931.

2. There are a lot of confederate generals

The states each pick two statues to send to the capitol, a lot of the southern states have selected confederates
