Clint Lacy ""The Missourah Bushwhacker"" came from Marble Hill, Mo. Thursday, October 13, 2011 to protest the message vandals left on the Civil War Confederate shrine Tuesday morning in the courtyard of the Common Pleas Courthouse in Cape Girardeau. The graffiti has been covered with a tarp since Tuesday. Lacy said, "I thought since these guys couldn't stand up for themselves, I thought I would come stand up for them for a while." Lacy has traveled as far as Memphis, Tenn. to stand up for confederate soldiers since "they are dead and can't stand up for themselves."
