What alot of people tend to forget about the American Revolution was that it was as much a civil war as anything else. Many Americans sided with the British. I see it as something similar to having a statue to a Confederate and think it is well and good that they are doing so. In Vermont, Rogers is still remembered for his actions here. However, I can sympathise with the vets who dislike the timing of the statue's dedication. Memorial Day should be only for those who served this country.
