The Madison City Council has decided to remove a monument honoring Confederate soldiers at Forrest Hill cemetery. The Confederate Rest is the northernmost Confederate burial site in the country.

While removing the monument isn't that big a deal, the real is shame is that the Council decided against adding accurate historical information to the site. By ignoring the unique part of Wisconsin history, there is no way to learn from the mistakes of the past.
