Confederate statue may be moved

Some private groups are interested in relocating the two-story-tall, 15-ton controversial statute depicting a Confederate infantryman from its current spot on the grounds of the courthouse to the Ocala-Marion County Veterans Memorial Park.

One of the Confederate leaders noted on the base of the statue is Gen. Nathan Bedford Forrest, a fierce combat leader in the Civil War who is credited as a key founder of the Ku Klux Klan. • Article
