Dixie creed off the wall
AUSTIN: A Confederate plaque in the Texas capital that rejects slavery as the underlying cause of the Civil War has been removed.
State Representative Eric Johnson yesterday tweeted a photo of the blank wall where the creed was once displayed.
Mr Johnson, a Dallas Democrat, has long pushed the state to remove the plaque, which was made by the Children of the Confederacy and was first hung in 1959.
Texas Governor Greg Abbott and other state leaders agreed to remove the plaque on Friday.
