In 1911, a monument was erected in Orlando, Florida in honour of the Confederate traitors who fought to uphold slavery in the South. This week that monument was moved from its prominent position (despite protests from local losers) to a nearby cemetery, but the controversy hasn't died away yet. A local chapter of the Daughters of the Confederacy wants to take possession of the monument's time capsule.
