All the histrionics over the confederate monument makes me wonder why there is no comparable recognition for casualties of our other wars, for example the Revolution, or World Wars I and II. What is the reasoning here? 

Is it that sacrifice for undisputedly patriotic causes, that were actually successful, is reward in itself and does not need to be commemorated? Is a monument only needed as some kind of a consolation prize for sacrifice to a dubious (and lost) cause?
