Dear editor,

Commissioned after the assassination of Gov. William Goebel during a time of great political turmoil in Kentucky, the Jefferson Davis statue in the Capitol reflects an attempt to rewrite Frankfort’s pro-unionist (and anti-slavery) past. To be truthful to the history of Frankfort, the statue should be removed. 

While another is being commissioned, I suggest the statue of William Goebel be placed in its absence.
