Comments for: Students re-enact Civil War-era destruction of Bangor newspaper office

  • Great point about all the history around us in Bangor. Maybe if those statues could talk (or sing) people would pay more attention:  http://www.bangorbytes.com/p/videos_11.html

    Hey Celli, maybe we should privatize all the civil war statues around Bangor.  You could get Leon to run things.  Geez that would save the city and state a bundle wouldn’t it?  Maybe, what, $1000 bucks.

      Gordon Williamson, what does your comment have to do with this story? Guess the BDN monitor must be asleep.

        Representative Celli (R-Brewer) is a member of the Civil War Reenactment Group, Company B, 20th Maine Regiment.  Representative Celli has, in promoting GOP doctrine, worked tirelessly to privatize Maine’s public historic sites such as Fort Knox.  Unfortunately he was successful when Governor LePage, another GOP politician, gave Fort Knox to the Friends of Fort Knox.  Leon Seymour works for the FOFK as the Director of operations at Fort Knox.  If you read the last sentence of the story there is a connection between our public monuments and the reenactment of period events.  So, considering Representative Celli’s history concerning privatization of public property such as Fort Knox it is not unreasonable to think he may want to privatize the administration of our public monuments also.

    While I commend the fact that these students are learning about history, I have to ask myself one question. Is having students re-enact mob violence a good choice of teaching? I could have thought of a lot of others things that they could have done to re-enct history.
