Greenwood's War Memorial - The Rest of the Story

Dear Editor:

I pose a question - do you believe that it's possible to change the events of history? The management of Greenwood, SC does. I refer to the mayor's quote in the local Index-Journal newspaper 12/17/14 that "I think if history offends people it should be rewritten if possible". Of course the events of history cannot be changed.
