BRUNSWICK, Ga. — Leaders of a Georgia city have voted to remove a Confederate monument from a park where it has stood since 1902. Commissioners in the port city of Brunswick voted 4-1 to take the monument out of Hanover Square. Officials had debated what to do about the monument since July. That's when the initials BLM — for Black Lives Matter — were spray-painted on it during a protest. Brunswick Mayor Cornell Harvey says the monument will initially be moved into storage. The city hasn't found a new home for it, but the mayor says perhaps a museum might be willing to take it.
