Florida officials decided Wednesday not to move a Confederate memorial from in front of a courthouse. Instead, a mural will be put behind it to display, in the words of one county leader, “the love and diversity” in the community.

The Hillsborough County Commission voted 4-3 not to remove the statue of two Civil War soldiers erected in Tampa in 1911.

Supporters of removing the statue said they were deeply disappointed in the idea of a mural and say it’s an indication that white supremacy still reigns.

Advocates of Southern heritage say removing these symbols is a disservice to the men who fought in the Civil War, with one saying “an American veteran is a veteran. They deserve to be respected."

About 75 miles to the northeast, city workers in Orlando on Tuesday started moving a Confederate statue called “Johnny Reb” from a park in the heart of downtown to a nearby cemetery, following renewed public outcry that it’s a symbol of racism and white supremacy.
