Aug 23, 2012 — Thank you for your comments regarding the Forrest monument in Selma. Please be advised that the City of Selma is neither erecting nor expanding a monument to Forrest. Please be further advised that the United Daughters of the Confederacy is erecting a pedestal on which to place the Forrest monument, which has been in the cemetery for 11 years. The acre of property on which the monument is located was donated to the Ladies Memorial Association in 1877. Again, thank you for contacting me; however, please be assured that the City of Selma is neither building or expanding the Forrest monument.
Cecil Williamson, President
Selma City Council
