Commissioners: Graham confederate memorial to stay in place

GRAHAM, N.C. (WTVD) -- A confederate memorial in Alamance County is staying put.

The memorial outside the Old Alamance County Courthouse in Graham has been in question since a group recently called for it to be moved saying it represented slavery and hate.

Another group presented commissioners with a petition with 8,400 signatures asking to keep the memorial in place.

There was also a protest over the weekend supporting the memorial.

While the item was not on the agenda Monday night, Alamance County Commissioners all agreed they weren't touching the memorial -- fearing that removing it would cause division.
