Downtown Huntsville, Inc. is pushing for the removal and relocation of the Confederate Memorial on the Courthouse Square.

The organization provided a statement Tuesday afternoon, saying “Today, we advocate that one such step should be the removal and relocation of the Confederate Memorial from the Downtown Huntsville Courthouse Square to a historically-contextual location that would allow our community to learn from the great pain that this memorial represents while also removing it from our community’s courthouse grounds.”
