Now Defunct Confederate Monuments in Baltimore

I saw these in Baltimore, and according to the NYTimes this has now been removed, which is at least a nice gesture though I have my doubts that it will be accompanied by meaningful change. 

The inscription read "They were great generals and Christian soldiers and waged war like gentleman."

Stonewall Jackson was, in fact, noted for his ostentatious refusal to march on Sundays, and of course for owning slaves, the latter of which actually conforms more to the Christian holy book than the ostentatious demonstration of the former, but maybe now we can have better monuments.
