The destruction of history in the United States continues. This statue of Revolutionary War hero Colonel William Crawford was decapitated. It was located just outside the Crawford County Courthouse.
The fact that it’s located in Crawford County tells you a lot about the kind of hero William Crawford was. He served in the Revolutionary War as well as the French and Indian. In 1782 he was killed by Native Americans.

Per Daily Wire:
Crawford County sheriff Scott Kent said authorities were unclear as to when the vandalism took place. Attorney Joel Spitzer said he has photos as recently as August 20 showing the statue unharmed. He added, “It’s actually quite shocking to see this in little old Bucyrus, where we really have little connection to what’s going on in the south. … William Crawford was from the Revolutionary War and the French and Indian War, so I thought he was fairly safe,” calling the vandalism “a pitiful display of what someone thinks or feels.”
Spitzer stated, “I think it might be some sense of carryover from Charlottesville, and it may not be someone who knew the history of Colonel Crawford but it may be monkey see, monkey do.” He is offering a $1,000 reward for anyone who provides information about the vandalism that leads to an arrest and conviction. He said, “I consider the courthouse a true gem of the county. So many people work hard to keep things nice and if something like that happens, people need to be held accountable.”
The left has a hard time differentiating protesting and vandalism. These disgusting acts of violence and disregard for American history need to be put to a stop immediately.
