Two state senators have said they want part of a statewide property tax tied to the Confederacy to be diverted to preserve and promote Black history.

The tax, which is still collected, funds pensions for Confederate soldiers and their widows. Most of the revenue is used for other purposes, but 1 percent goes to the state's Confederate Memorial Park in Mountain Creek.

New Confederate Monument to be Unveiled This Weekend

Aug 25, 2017

Confederate monuments have been the topic of many discussions lately, mostly about them being torn down or covered up.

But a new Confederate monument is set to be unveiled this weekend in Crenshaw County. The monument is dedicated to “unknown Alabama Confederate soldiers.” David Coggins, the owner of Confederate Memorial Park where the monument will be located, says it is intended to honor Confederate soldiers who died in battle and never received a proper burial.
