Dear Johnny Reb: An argument for the removal of Confederate memorials.

Stand down and go home, Johnny Reb.

This film is an expression of a thought and a desire by Mississippi filmmaker Philip Scarborough. He, along with fellow Mississippians (NOT ACTORS, real, native Mississippians) , have crafted a letter to the Confederate “sentinels” looming over courthouse lawns across their state. In a heartfelt appeal to these manifestations of his Confederate ancestors’ racism, Scarborough explains why it’s time for them to stand down and go home. As more and more Mississippians feel these symbols don’t represent them or the diversity of their home state, and as the confederate flag has been recently tied to domestic terrorism, this film is an argument for the removal of confederate monuments in Mississippi.

These ‘sentinels’ are 42 of the more than 150 memorials to the Confederacy in Mississippi.

Johnny Rebel is the national personification of the Confederacy during the American Civil War of the 1860s. Patriots used Johnny Reb and his Union counterpart Billy Yank to symbolize the common soldiers in that war.
