Yes, it’s appropriate to reconsider the heroes of the past, as is happening on campuses today. But let’s not go too far.
Airbrushing history has a famous precedent. On Wikipedia you can see pairs of photographs of Lenin or Stalin in which once-important people were edited out after they fell from favor. Most, if not all, the “edited” individuals were executed as well. Those included Leon Trotsky, Alexander Malchenko, Lev Kalmenev, Nicolai Yevshov, and undoubtedly others.
One series of four photographs began with four men and ended with just one, Josef Stalin.
Wikimedia Commons has even more such photographs and is seeking other “before” and “after” examples.
In contrast to the Soviets, let’s remember our history honestly.
