AUSTIN, Texas — A historically inaccurate brass plaque honoring confederate veterans will come down after a vote this morning, WFAA has learned.

Does this now mean that Texans never fought on the side of the south? Does taking down a sign “rectify” the matter??

When can we vote on the removal and future ban of all MLK Boulevard signage throughout Texas?

The report is wrong. The plaque is historically accurate.

Anybody who has read Lincoln’s Inaugural Address or who has read the Corwin Amendment knows slavery was not threatened in the US. It’s preservation could have been ensured permanently with the approval of Texas and other Southern states.

People will believe whatever fantasy they want to believe regardless of a plaque.

the war between the states was not a rebellion, nor was its underlying cause to sustain slavery

Cowards! There's nothing inaccurate about it.

It was the result of the federal government and the Northern States refusing to honor the Constitution as it was written.

" The plaque, erected by the Children of the Confederacy in 1959, reads in part '…the war between the states was not a rebellion, nor was its underlying cause to sustain slavery.'

Take it down for being inaccurate if for no other reason.

If I was living in the South I'd wear a baseball cap with a Confederate flag on it 24/7.I'd do so not in support of slavery but simply because it would pi$$ off so many SJWs. I can't do it up here because if I did I'd be lynched....yes,I said "lynched"....within minutes of being seen.

And for the record...it would be whites (sorry"Caucasian Americans") who'd do the lynching.

The original seven Confederate states had seceded before the Corwin Amendment was offered and before Lincoln's inauguration, and having adopted a constitution that protected slavery to a far greater extent than the U.S. Constitution did.

Read the texas secession ordinance. It makes it abundantly clear Texas succession was over slavery. Take it down.

They say that Texas will eventually turn “blue”...at least partially because of its proximity to the border.Hopefully I’ll be long gone before that happens because when (if) it does this country’s finished.
