Close Orange community members engage leaders about Confederate Memorial kjac , KBMT 6:25 PM. CDT April 11, 2013 CONNECT TWEET LINKEDIN GOOGLE+ PINTEREST Some in Orange are looking to "rally" their troops to fight a memorial that would wave rebel flags over the city. A panel consisting of city leaders elected officials and ministers addressed concerns over a proposed Confederate Veterans Memorial in Orange. It's being built by the Sons of Confederate Veterans on Martin Luther King Drive off I-10. No one who attended a town hall meeting Monday supported the memorial. There were about 70 in attendance. Much of the panel said their biggest concerns were having rebel flags waving in Orange on MLK drive. It's something they say doctor king wouldn't stand for and contradicts everything he did stand for. The Sons of Confederate Veterans did not have anyone in attendance. If the organization did the person did not make themselves known. The group has said before that the memorial is for education purposes and to get rid of the misconceptions about the confederates. The memorial is expected to cost at least $50,000 all paid by the organization.
