FLORENCE -On Saturday, June 6 a group of concerned citizens gathered at the Lauderdale County Courthouse to urge the removal of the Confederate monument in front of the courthouse.
Project Say Something spearheaded by Camille Bennett founder of Project Say Something requested the monument be moved to the Soldier’s Rest area of the Florence City Cemetery.
The crowd of over 100 people made their thoughts known about the monument with chants and signs saying “not my monument and “No Peace No Justice” many believing it is time to put the monument to rest and go forward with a new world.
The Quad Cities Daily was on hand to capture the event in photos. We present them to you here:
