In the demoralizing wasteland of 2021, good news is difficult to come by. But a small piece of this rare commodity came into existence on February 9, when Laurel Hill, the birthplace and boyhood home of General James Ewell Brown “Jeb” Stuart, erected a monument to the young cavalryman.
Seeing the pictures on Facebook brought a smile to my face and a little bit of much-needed joy to my heart.
Although the monument is relatively modest in size, it’s heartwarming to see a Confederate statue actually being put up instead of taken down.
