Potomac View Road south of Rt 7 follows a ridge, also called Mirror Ridge for its use as a Civil War signalling station, now leads to Nokes Boulevard and Dulles Town Center.
this morning i attended rich gillespie’s civilwar walking tour
and of course saw the statue in front of the loco courthouse
gillespie noted that it was put up to honor the dead after 50 yrs, and that it was not needed to enforce jim crow, a black man having recently been lynched with barbed wire
of course it was not _intended_ to intimidate, but it certainly _reminded_ blacks who really won:-/
and dont forget there are no confederate monuments to longstreet, who committed the sin of enforcing black rights:-/
so if this statue is not taken down, it should be modified to reflect the fact that these traitors were _not_ hanged, perhaps with a cut noose on his neck, hmmm?-/
