Daytona Beach Removes 3 Confederate Plaques From Riverfront Park

By on August 19, 2017 in WNDB News

Daytona Beach, FL – Three Confederate plaques were removed from Riverfront Park in Daytona Beach on Friday morning.

The Southern Citizens of Daytona Beach provided one of the plaques in 1961 and the Sons of Confederacy gave the City two more in 1979 and 1985.

Daytona Beach City Manager, James Chrisholm, made the decision to take down the plaques because he did not want a potentially divisive monument in a public space. The plaques will be relocated to the Halifax Historical Museum.
