Sunday a new confederate monument was erected at the privately owned Confederate Veterans Memorial Park in Brantley, Alabama.
According to multiple reports around 200 people attended in confederate garb and members of the Alt-rights militia group “the Three Percenters” attended to provide security.
Although this unveiling comes shortly after the violence in Charlottesville, owner David Coggins told the Associated Press the unveiling was planned over nine months ago.
