The first statue to be remove was the Taney statue in Annapolis, Md.  

City workers removed the statue during the night on August 18. Taney authored the supreme courts Dred Scott decision on 1857 which held that African Americans could not be U.S citizens, therefore it was removed for “Public safety”

The next four statues to be removed were the four people with ties to the confederacy which are Robert E. Lee, Albert Sydney Johnson, John H. Reagan, and former Texas Gov. James Stephen Hogg were removed. U.T’s president wrote a statement with the words written “Confederate monuments have become symbols of modern white supremacy and neo-Nazism” which was the reason for the monuments to be removed.

In August 24 a confederate statue of a soldier has been removed in Mantee County after the city commission voted to take it down and put it in storage. The monument stood there for over 90 years, but was broken into two pieces when city workers removed it. The cost of the removal of the monument was about 12,700$.

In Brooklyn New York City plaques honoring Lee were removed from an episcopal church’s property and the government called on the Army to remove the names of a confederate general from the streets of a nearby fort.

There are to many to list but there are still more several monuments and confederate statues still being removed, at the moment the total of confederate statues to be removed is about 21.
