Remove the Confederate Statue of General Granbury from Granbury Square

Please join me in signing this petition to encourage the Granbury City Council to remove this symbol of hate. The Granbury Square Confederate monument has existed as is since 1913 in downtown Granbury, TX. Understanding that there is some historical significance in the statue and base, a more fitting home would be one of the many museums or historic cemetery in Acton. This would also ensure its safety from vandals as well as ensure that violent white radicals do no hijack our beautiful city for violent causes.
With hate crimes and white nationalist movements on the rise, we as a city must come together to make some serious symbolic strides to combat racism. With the removal of this statue, we can put an end to glamorizing the Confederacy and recognize that they stood for the continued enslavement of black people in this country. Removing the statue would be a positive step towards mending race relations in the area. Leaving it up sends a message to tourists who are not white that they are not welcome. Think of how absurd and repugnant it would be to erect a memorial to Bin Laden in the middle of Ground Zero to "preserve history".
