On September 26, 2009 the Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War plans to place a monument on the sacred Southern soil of the Battle of Lexington State Historic Site. Scheduled to speak is U.S. Rep. Ike Skelton. 

While we do not object to the SUV placing a monument to honor the Union soldiers who fought bravely there, we do object to the manner in which the monument was funded as the wording on the monument. 

The monument (which was funded through the sales of the 19th century book “The Chronicles of Lexington” which refers to Missourians as“PUKE-ITES”)

States that the Union men fighting under Mulligan were the “Defenders” of Lexington. 

For the record, Mulligan’s men were made up of recent German immigrants to Missouri and Irishmen from Illinois. 

On Monday please call REP. IKE SKELTON at: 202-225-2876  &  respectfully ask him not to speak at an event that was funded by insulting Missourians.
