Potential Damage to Confederate Monuments and Grave Sites in North Carolina
By now you should have had an opportunity to read and review the NC Division's press release concerning Governor Cooper's recommending the removal of Confederate monuments located within North Carolina, and the continuing damaging or destruction of Confederate monuments.
Those of you who might wish to stand watch at various times at the Confederate monument in Beaufort should contact Johnny Driver to get an idea as to dates/times he already has stood watch or that he would be considering. Those of you who are older should consider at a minimum driving by the monument whenever you are in the area or even taking an occasional trip to Beaufort specifically to check on the monument.
Should you see any vandalism, immediately report it to the Carteret County Sheriff indicating that it is a felony to damage monuments and grave sites in North Carolina.
Do not get involved in any altercations concerning the monuments, but again report such to the Sheriff.
If you have any questions concerning the above, please contact Jake Sullivan, the NC Division's Heritage Officer; his email address is email@example.com.
Do not get into any question or answer sessions with reporters but also refer them to Jake Sullivan.
