ELLICOTT CITY, Md. (AP) — A Confederate memorial has been removed from outside a Maryland courthouse.
Photos posted on Howard County Executive Allan H. Kittleman's Facebook page show the memorial outside the Circuit Court in Ellicott City being removed Monday night and placed onto a truck. The monument includes the names of dozens of Confederate soldiers from the area.
Kittleman said the "more appropriate place for the memorial is in a museum."
