Virginia’s Republican Governor, Bob McDonnell has declared that April is Confederate history month, celebrating the many Southern whites who fought to preserve slavery and leave the union. No word as for when he will declare Nazi History month. Here is his statement regarding the declaration.

This defining chapter in Virginia’s history should not be forgotten, but instead should be studied, understood and remembered by all Virginians, both in the context of the time in which it took place, but also in the context of the time in which we live, and this study and remembrance takes on particular importance as the Commonwealth prepares to welcome the nation and the world to visit Virginia for the Sesquicentennial Anniversary of the Civil War, a four-year period in which the exploration of our history can benefit all.
