Caddo Long Range Planning Committee Votes to Remove Courthouse Confederate Monument

CaddoParishCourthouse_ACurrier

 

The removal of the Confederate monument at the Caddo Courthouse is coming close to a reality after today’s vote.

This afternoon, Caddo’s Long Range Planning Committee voted 4-3 in favor of removing the controversial statue. This result was unexpected by many, considering the commission’s Monument Advisory Committee recommended┬ájust a few weeks ago to leave the monument where it stands. They also recommended to build two new monuments on the courthouse grounds, including one that pays homage to civil rights.

No, this vote does not mean the Confederate monument will be coming down, but it certainly means that’s becoming a real possibility.

Now, the final vote will go to the Caddo Commission, where the fate of the Confederate monument will ultimately be decided.
