Monumental Battles Brew Over Confederate Symbols-- Part 2: The SCV Versus Univ. of Texas

The Jefferson Davis statue at the University of Texas is scheduled to become a part of an educational exhibit at the Briscoe Center for American History.  A statue of President Woodrow Wilson will also be relocated.

But a spokesman for the Sons of Confederate Veterans says the decision to remove the Davis statue within 72 hours had not given the group time to investigate the university's legal authority to do it.

"These statues have stood in place for 82 years and we are a little concerned about the speed that the university has decided to relocate them.  The Briscoe Center won't be ready to receive the statue for 18 months, so what's the hurry?"

Well, I'd have to say it is jump on the ant-Confederate band wagon, the thing to do these days.
