This week the Confederate Marker that marks where the old Confederate Government building stood was returned to its former location. It had been taken down when the construction for the Renaissance Hotel was begun six years ago.
The marker was originally paid for by the Sons of Confederate Veterans and installed in 1979 to show where the offices of the Confederate government stood. When it was taken down city officials promised it would be put back at the site.
I am very pleased to see that this has been done, as it is the right thing to do. I am sure the SCV is very happy to see it back as well. There is a large Confederate Battle flag on one side and that is always cause for controversy but that side has been placed to the back. I plan to get down to see it today!
