    Yes, the KKK faction who thrive on hatred would also be considered home grown terrorists, IMO. But people who just want to keep their monuments to remember their ancestors are not included in that category. Civil War veterans (even ones from the south) are AMERICAN veterans and when you dishonor them and their monuments, you are dishonoring American veterans of war. Let's not forget the awful circumstances in which many of these men from the south died in POW camps where they were mistreated and did not get any medical care and died slow and painful deaths from infections and other horrible illnesses. The North worked HARD to reconcile with the south after the war, and now their hard work is being shat upon.

    Let us not forget what these "American" veterans were fighting for. From the CSA Constitution:

    Article IV Section 3(3)
    The Confederate States may acquire new territory; and Congress shall have power to legislate and provide governments for the inhabitants of all territory belonging to the Confederate States, lying without the limits of the several states; and may permit them, at such times, and in such manner as it may by law provide, to form states to be admitted into the Confederacy. In all such territory, the institution of negro slavery as it now exists in the Confederate States, shall be recognized and protected by Congress, and by the territorial government: and the inhabitants of the several Confederate States and Territories, shall have the right to take to such territory any slaves lawfully held by them in any of the states or territories of the Confederate states.
