Confederate monument removed from Denton County Square

The Denton County Confederate soldier monument was removed from the south lawn of the Courthouse on the Square as crews transported the statue to county storage.

The removal began before 4 a.m. and took about 10 hours, with crews working to dismantle the statue, placing pieces of the statue onto a flatbed truck for transportation.

Denton County Judge Andy Eads, who was seen monitoring the progress of removal before 7 a.m., said that neither the public nor media was notified before the removal began because of concerns of public safety.

Eads described his reasoning as “common sense,” saying that removing the statue “without fanfare,” would limit the opportunity for people from out of town to cause disruptions.

1. Wow! Denton's a teensy bit blue, but there's a lot of red that's weeping tonight.

I'm impressed.

Very cool. Thanks for the post!
