Pomnik Konfederatów Wilsona zburzony po dziesięcioleciach stania przed budynkiem sądu
The monument was commissioned by the United Daughters of the Confederacy and the Daughters of the American Revolution in 1926. After months of discussion, Wilson County announced its decision to remove the monument.
this Monument here outside of the Wilson County Courthouse might look familiar uh to you if you don’t live in that area you might have saw it on wrl because we talked to a group of protesters there a few weeks ago calling for its removal due to its connection to the Confederacy well today take a look you wouldn’t even know it was ever there in the first place Wilson County removed itl’s Heidi Kirk spoke with community members who say its removal marks a new [Music] chapter this Confederate Monument was the source of years of controversy here in Wilson County and after Decades of it being here at the Wilson County Courthouse all that’s left of it is this empty plot of land when we spotted Leslie Jones outside the courthouse we could tell he’s been around I’m a Vietnam veteran I served in Vietnam 66 67 68 we asked him what he thought about the removal of the 1926 Confederate Monument I think it should have been removed for Jones the Confederate flag embossed on it felt personal these same people fought for my ancestors to stay in slavery Wilson County announced its decision to remove the monument last week after months of discussion a spokesperson tells us state law requires its preservation and for now it’s in storage it should be like in a museum or something that’s the only place that I could see you know because in a museum you know people can come by and see and they can understand the history of it Daniel Graham tells us he used the monument to educate his children they asked me what what did that stand for what is that what is that Monument they have to understand what it stands for now he head it home to tell them it was removed I spoke with about a dozen people here outside the Wilson County Courthouse most of them wanted the monument gone but we did speak to one person who didn’t want to go on camera who said that he would like to see the monument still on display as it provides an important piece of history now we asked the county about any plans in the future to relocate it and they did not provide us with any information Heidi Kirk wrl news Wilson County
