Gettysburg NMP managers: No Confederate monuments will be removed or changed

The National Park Service released a statement Friday saying the agency will not alter, relocate, obscure or remove any monuments at Gettysburg National Military Park, even “when they are deemed inaccurate or incompatible with prevailing present-day values.”


The statement, released onto the park’s website, describes the Confederate monuments at Gettysburg as representing an “important, if controversial, chapter in our nation’s history.”
