Savannah city council to consider confederate memorial recommendations

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - Savannah City Council will vote Wednesday on a motion whether to adopt certain recommendations to the Forsyth Park Confederate Memorial. This includes changing the monument's name to the "Civil War Memorial."

There is also a recommendation to add a new bronze plaque re-dedicating the monument to all of those who died in the Civil War, not just the Confederate soldiers.

These recommendations were put forward by a task force.
