Alabama Memorial Preservation Act
The Alabama State legislature passed SB-60 and Governor Kay Ivey signed into law the Alabama Memorial Preservation Act "to prohibit the relocation, removal, alteration, renaming, or other disturbance of any architecturally significant building, memorial building, memorial street or monument located on public property which has been in placed for 40 or more years". The Sons of Confederate Veterans worked to get this legislation passed in the face of the politically correct historical revisionism which has led to the removal of historical monuments across the country, most recently the General Lee, General Beauregard and President Jefferson Davis monuments by liberal race bating hate mongers posing as the city council and mayor of New Orleans. This Act protects monuments honoring those who helped shape the history of the state of Alabama from colonial times to the heroes of recent 20th and 21st century conflicts, including those who fought to defend their homes and state in the War for Southern Independence.
