IT BEGINS: Vandals Decapitate Statue of Revolutionary War Hero

The statue of a revolutionary war hero was decapitated in Ohio Thursday night, the latest in a string of incidents where vandals and far-left activists are attacking historical symbols and monuments throughout the United States.

The monument to Col. William Crawford, who was tortured to death near the end of the American War of Independence, stands near the entrance of the Crawford County Courthouse in Ohio. The statue was found Friday morning with the head removed.

According to local news the suspect or suspects remain at large.

Crawford first served in the French and Indian War, and later in the American revolution under the command of George Washington. A local lawyer is offering a reward for the arrest of the criminals behind the beheading.

“This saddens me. I love my hometown. I don’t know much of the history of Col. Crawford, but for the fact that he was a surveyor and a soldier of the Revolutionary War and French and Indian War. Crawford County works so hard to keep things nice and the courthouse is an absolute gem,” wrote the Attorney.

President Trump weighed-in on the ongoing tensions throughout the nation regarding the country’s historical monuments and symbols, asking those who are advocating the removal of confederate memorials where it all ends.

“Sad to see the history and culture of our great country being ripped apart with the removal of our beautiful statues and monuments. You can’t change history, but you can learn from it. Robert E Lee, Stonewall Jackson – who’s next, Washington, Jefferson?” asked the President.

    It is time to stop this now tell all those yelling about statues they are not going anywhere and make the decision stick. If they vandalize a statue come up with a way to make it a hate crime and send them to prison. About half a dozen in prison should settle things down a lot.

    This is vandalism, cut and dried. Who ever did this need to be arrested and held accountable for the crime they committed. This is un-American and totally unacceptable. The perpetrators should not only be charged and held accountable but they need to pay for the statue to be made whole again. Destruction of American history should be held in the highest contempt there is. Men and women have served, died and suffered horrendous injuries just so these people have the right to protest. They need to be sentenced to serve in the US Army as retribution. No early release for good behavior.

    This too is a part of history> The Gnadenhutten massacre, also known as the Moravian massacre, was the killing of 96 Christian Lenape (Delaware) by colonial American militia from Pennsylvania on March 8, 1782 at the Moravian missionary village of Gnadenhutten, Ohio during the American Revolutionary War.[2]

    They are trying to destroy our history and replace it with one that matches their agenda. I guess book burning will be next.
