Here’s a state by state list of confederate monuments that need to go down! :D

August 15, 2017

While white supremacists worked themselves up into a murderous rage this weekend in Charlottesville, Virginia, following the announcement of plans to remove Confederate monuments, this has only renewed efforts around the country to get rid of the rest. As reported by NBC, mayors in Lexington, KY; Baltimore, MD and both Jacksonville and Gainesville, FL have already announced plans to move forward with removing rebel symbols in their city.

But this is only the tip of the ice-berg! Below is a list of all the Confederate monuments in the country, pulled from Wikipedia. If you’re white, not saying you should get an early start taking them down, but know that Black and Brown people have more to lose, and check out what’s happening in North Carolina 🙂

Alabama

Arizona

In 2017, the presence of six monuments to the Confederacy were praised. These include a monument dedicated to Confederate Civil War veterans in Phoenix, Arizona and a historic plaque near Tucson, Arizona which commemorates the Battle of Picacho Pass.[18]

Monuments in Arizona include:

  • Arizona Confederate Veterans Monument in Greenwood Memory Lawn Cemetery in Phoenix, erected in 1999 by the Sons of Confederate Veterans[8]
  • Arizona Confederate Veterans Monument in Wesley Bolin Park, next to the Arizona State Capitol in Phoenix, erected by the United Daughters of the Confederacy[8]
  • Confederate Memorial in the Historical Soldiers Memorial Cemetery area of the Southern Arizona Veterans’ Cemetery in Sierra Vista. The monument was erected in 2010 to honor the twenty-one soldiers interred in that cemetery who served in the Confederate Army during the Civil War and later fought in Indian wars in Arizona as members of the U.S. Army.[9]

Arkansas

Star City Confederate Memorial is located on the town square adjacent to Star City Commercial Historic District in Star City. It is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
