The Confederate monument in the median of a busy east Alabama city street is gone.
Anniston city workers took about 20 minutes to remove the monument after Midnight Monday on Quintard Avenue. The marble obelisk had been a landmark of the busy city street since 1905.
The Anniston City Council voted twice to remove the monument, which bears the name of John Pelham, a Confederate officer who was killed in the Civil War.
