New legislation in Georgia would outlaw any symbols, monuments, memorials or other dedications to the Confederacy on public property.
Even flying a Confederate battle flag on private property might be outlawed.
The bill would also make it illegal to display symbols of the Confederacy at a residence, store, place of business, public building or school. That law includes inside or outside those buildings.
A Georgia resident told 11Alive that she doesn’t agree with the proposal because it would take away from the education of the country’s history.
“It was there at a time, and it was built for a time, but don’t tear it down. Let’s grow from it,” April Lovingood said. “You’re erasing a part of history I think our kids need to know about.”
The bill is still in the early stages of legislation.
