Jim, et al.,

This is not new to history. "Damnatio memoriae," Latin for damnation of memory.

http://www.ancient-origins.net/history/damnation-memory-and-efforts-erase-condemned-history-002331

It is usually done when a culture is in decline and not the ascendancy. I will be speaking at a Memorial Day remembrance on Memorial Day in Jasper, Georgia and it will be my topic.

Please let me know if you have any questions.

Respectfully,
