Letter writer George W. Young defended the Confederate flag and objected to replacing Florida's statue in the National Statuary Hall.
Yes, the Confederacy is part of Florida's history. That's why its symbols belong in a museum, along with other historical relics.
Florida once belonged to Spain as well, but we don't fly the Spanish flag over government buildings. It's time to replace Florida's outdated statue with a real Florida champion like Marjory Stoneman Douglas.
