Relocation Of Ole Miss Confederate Monument Delayed

OXFORD, MS (Ben Caxton) — Plans to remove a Confederate monument on the campus of Ole Miss were delayed late last week after Mississippi’s Institutions of Higher Learning Board tabled a decision. The push to relocate the marble statue of a saluting Confederate soldier put up in 1906 has been going on for almost a year. The state department of archives and history approved the relocation plans in December. The university says moving the monument could take 90 days and cost $650,000.

    You can’t change history. I truly don’t understand how a monument can offend anyone.

  2. This Confederate Statue is not saluting! A soldier would salute with the right hand. This soldier is using his left hand to protect is eyes so he can see better. Apparently people look at the statue but don’t see it. The statue should stay period! If the generations in the future want to learn from our mistakes then the statue stays.
