Trouble is brewing in Tallahassee with revisionist trying to destroy history.
The obelisk-style monument was dedicated in 1882 and moved onto the grounds of what is now the Old State Capitol in 1923.
The words etched into the stone dedicate the monument to preserving the memory of men who fought for Florida in the Civil War.
“Floridians served all across the theaters of war,” said David McCallister with the Sons of Confederate Veterans.
McCallister has ties to soldiers on both sides of the war.
“These monuments represent the men who served their state and defended their families,” said McCallister.
