WFTX Published April 3, 2018

Rumble A civil rights group is asking the Fort Myers city council to move the bust into a museum or Confederate cemetery.  But Monday, dozens of supporters of the statue pleaded with city council not to move the bust of General Lee from its current location on Monroe Street, which is city property. However, the city says they didn't put this statue up and have no control over it being taken down.
