In terms of the Civil War, and the philosophies and mindsets that fueled that war, I'm firmly pro-Union. Unswervingly pro-Union. Because of that, I am against federal and state government facilities being named after Confederates (Fort Bragg, for example). And I'm against the Confederate battle flag flying over state houses or being a part of official state flags. Now, having said that, statues and monuments are a whole 'nother matter. I'm for the preservation of these things. It saddens me that the statues are coming down. NOT because I feel sympathy with the cause those memorialized fought or stood for, but rather because these people - wrong as they were - were part of our collective history. Pulling down these statues is no better than book burning. It's abominable.
Now, a more rational approach by those eradicating the statues would've been if they could have monuments/memorials erected in the vicinity of the Confederate statues. Say, a monument depicting the evils of slavery, or, where applicable, a statue of a soldier/officer from that state who stayed loyal to, and fought for the Union. Like George Thomas from Virginia.
I'm not against showing the diversity of opinion at the sites of Confederate statues/monuments/memorials. What I am against is the determined effort to erase all evidence of the Confederacy from our collective memory. Toppling statues should be something they do in countries far away from here. Not in America.
Hope that answers your question, Rob!
