Respect on private property by those who care is ok with me.

As long as it's very, very private, OK with me if family and friends want to "honor" this...person.

NBF has a very illustrious history that, I suppose, is respected by more people in the US than I would have thought just a few short years ago. Let's look at just a few highlights:

-prior to the war, he was a wealthy merchant and businessman who made much of his money in the slave trade
-during the war, he slaughtered hundreds of surrendering soldiers, both black and white, and also
-committed atrocities such as crucifying and burning them alive
-after the war, he was one of the first members and first Grand Wizard of the KKK

Just several of the list of wonderful things this traitor in shades of gray was well-known for.
