In Boston, Massachusetts, right across from the State House, there is a monument to the American Civil War.
The sculpture depicts African-American soldiers who fought for the Union.
This week it was vandalized by rioters. These leftists have no respect for anything.
Rioters Deface ‘Glory’ Monument to Black Civil War Soldiers in Boston
Rioters in Boston defaced the Shaw 54th Regiment Memorial to black soldiers in the Civil War as a “Black Lives Matter” protest moved through the city on Sunday.
The Boston Globe reported: “Memorials in three of the city’s major parks were hit with graffiti and vandalism Sunday night after tensions mounted between demonstrators and police following a day of mostly peaceful protest marches that wound through Boston.”
One of those memorials, the Globe noted, was the monument to the 54th: “One of the memorials targeted by vandals was the Robert Gould Shaw and the 54th Regiment Memorial, which was unveiled 137 years ago Sunday and depicts a pioneering group of Black soldiers marching into battle during the Civil War.”

The lack of appreciation for America’s history here is very telling, isn’t it?
