I'm descended from the Shawnee Chief Cornstalk who was killed in 1777.
I am also of Scots-Irish descent and VERY proud of my heritage and my culture. I do not apologize for my culture, nor am I "politically correct", and do not tolerate others who think that it is a necessity to be so.

Proposed Monument Honoring Union Soldiers at Florida’s Olustee Battlefield Sparks Outrage
At one point of the hearing, a black Confederate soldier ancestor, a man by the name of H.K. Edgerton raised his Confederate flag and started the tune of Dixie!
"Passions ran high, at one point erupting in a spontaneous chorus of “Dixie” led by a black man, H.K. Edgerton, who called Union soldiers rapists and wielded his large Confederate flag like a conductor’s baton as the audience sang."
Some points to consider about this proposed monument are such ones as the idea of putting a monument to terrorists at the site of the Twin Towers, or to erect a monument to the bombers in Pearl Harbor that killed American troops. Why would anyone want to honor the invaders and murderers of their ancestors, especially at such a place as a large battle as this?
