This monument has created a bone of contention in the City of Denton. Personally, erecting a monument to glorify the losing side of a civil war which was a treasonous attempt to over throw the United States government seems ridiculous.

Better hurry before the Leftist(Marxist) historical revisionist and spineless policrats remove it! It's a sad testament to our current culture, but they did the same in ancient Eome before it collapsed.

This status was erected to honour those soldiers from Denton county who served in the war. It has survived the attempts my the racially-motivated left attempting to rewrite history.

Was a nice slice of history, my family and I are history buffs. We enjoyed looking at this and researching the history before and after.

Come and see this beautiful but controversial memorial to Confederate soldiers of the Civil War. Or come on Sunday to see the pickets.

This statue is on the courthouse grounds. It's still in good shape. It's part of history, whether you like it or not. Can't be erased. Shouldn't be forgotten. I understand there are protests here on a variable basis, so view as you feel comfortable.

Why would any part of history want to be removed or forgotten? Should all Hitler stuff be removed because it was a horrible part of history? NO. Removing historical monuments from public display doesn't change the past or the future. Having a monument keeps the...More

Needs to be knocked over and burned. It is a symbol of hate for anyone with brain cells. I love living on campus but hate having to look at this “monument” everytime I decide to go to the square.
