The DeKalb County Commission voted Tuesday to attempt to move a 109-year-old monument honoring the Confederacy.
If successful, the county could be one of the first communities in Georgia to expel a Confederate monument.
The resolution, approved on an 6-1 vote, orders the county’s attorneys to find a legal way to remove or relocate the 30-foot obelisk located outside the former county courthouse in Decatur.
