'Johnny Reb' Confederate statue has new home in Florida
ORLANDO, Fla. - A Confederate statue removed from the downtown park of a major Florida city now has a new home.
WFTV-TV reported Wednesday that the statue nicknamed "Johnny Reb" now stands in Orlando's Greenwood Cemetery.
The 106-year-old memorial was removed in July after public complaints that the monument is a symbol of racism and white supremacy.
The Greenwood Cemetery already has a section set aside for Confederate soldiers.
When the statue was moved, workers discovered a time capsule at its base that contained a Confederate flag and Confederate States of America dollar bills, among other items.
