One of David’s “Endangered Confederate Memorials” is his own tribute to one of his ancestors who was a member of the Richmond Howitzers. Apparently when David began to build this monument out of scrap wood from work his neighbors call the local building officials and complained that he was building the structure without the proper permits. It turns out that David’s monument to his ancestor is really just a “Garden structure with yard art” and he did not need a building permit.
I am not sure how David considers this a threatened monument. His neighbors may not like it but nowhere does it say or imply that anyone has requested that Tatum remove the private monument. The only reference to complaints besides the building permit comes from David himself when he states in the finest of Queens English…
“Heck my monument wont even finished and folks were cryin about it !”
0-4-1 David…not doing so well with this “Confederate Heritage Destruction” thingy!
