A Confederate statue will remain on a Texas county courthouse lawn, commissioners voted unanimously Thursday.
Parker County Judge Pat Deen said county documents did not provide any evidence that the statue had ever been officially owned by the county, the Forth Worth Star-Telegram reported.
Deen said the statue is actually the property of the United Daughters of the Confederacy. The United Daughters of the Confederacy was founded in Nashville in 1894 and seeks to preserve the history of the Confederate States, according to its website.

“We went through all the minutes from the court, starting back from roughly 1901 to 1950. In that time period, there has never been a motion made by the court to ever accept the Confederate statue, as you see out there,” Parker County Attorney John Forrest said, the Star-Telegram reported.
