Do you think it's possible you might be over reacting just the teensiest bit? They've still got graves and stones and you can still fight to have another memorial placed there to tell the story.
Just because one memorial praising slavers is gone, doesn't mean there can't be another memorial telling the story that doesn't glorify and praise the deaths of people who fought for slavery, put up by women who supported slavery.
