'Racist' Civil War cannons removed from park, returned to Confederate group

Via Susan  "So canons are racist now, huh...?'


The replica Civil War cannons that used to stand in a Memphis park alongside a statue of Jefferson Davis were removed Wednesday and turned over to the Sons of Confederate Veterans.

Van Turner with Memphis Greenspace, the nonprofit that now owns the park, said he had planned on putting the cannons in storage until SCV showed him an invoice showing that the group had purchased them. He said he felt comfortable turning them over the SCV.
