The removal of a 27-foot tall Confederate monument in Greenville was completed Tuesday. The bronze statue atop the monument was removed on Monday; the pedestal and base were removed from the site in front of the Pitt County Courthouse early Tuesday morning. According to a news release, part of the original foundation remains and will be cleaned within the coming days. The statue will be stored and preserved until a relocation committee determines a permanent location. The removal of the monument comes about one week following a vote from Pitt County Commissioners.
