Anthony Canery started this petition to Robeson County Board Of County Commissioners

The Confederate Statute that stands in front of the county courthouse needs to be removed. Many people of many races and creeds do business in the courthouse everyday and to walk in and see the statue at the entrance makes no sense. There are people in this country that would like to re-write history to reflect an event that they would have wanted to happen. We can not allow this to happen. The South lost the Civil War. Why do they get to place monuments all over the country saying the opposite?

The war ended in 1865, yet the statue was erected in 1907, a full 42 years after the fact. Was it placed for history sake, or was it placed there to go along with the laws of the country at the time, like Jim Crow?

For the sake of our children and grandchildren, the statue needs to go a museum or any other place that would welcome it.
