University of Alabama to remove Confederate statues from campus

The University of Alabama announced on Monday that it has authorized the removal of three Confederate plaques from their current campus locations.

In a statement, the University also said it will be reviewing the names of all of its building on all campuses.

The statues commemorate University of Alabama students who served in the Confederate Army and members of the student cadet corps involved in defending the campus, according to the University.

“The plaques are located on and in front of Gorgas Library. These plaques will be placed at a more appropriate historical setting on the recommendation of Dr. Bell,” the statement said, referring to UA President Stuart Bell.
