Protesters marched to the Manatee County Courthouse in Bradenton, Florida, on Monday evening, August 21, to call for the removal of a monument dedicated to Confederate soldiers located in front of the building. According to the Bradenton Herald, counter-protesters from America First-Team Manatee, a local group of Trump supporters, also arrived at the scene to support keeping the monument, which was covered up on Friday, August 18. At least one person was detained during a standoff between the rival groups but the protest dispersed without any serious violence, according to local reporters.
