To the editor:
I was raised in Fayette and Woodford counties. Most courthouse lawns and courthouse squares have Confederate or Union monuments.
Confederates were mainly men from all around Kentucky, mostly farmers and not slave owners.
Less than 10 percent in the Bluegrass owned slaves and were wealthy planters. There we black Confederates as well that served, and in all fairness we need to honor these beautiful monuments all around the commonwealth, Confederate and Union.
