Two of the seven Confederate statues near Tampa Bay still remain: the Stonewall Jackson Monument in Ft. Mead and a Confederate soldier statue outside a Brooksville courthouse.

When the others came down: Most Confederate monuments in Hillsborough, Manatee and Pinellas counties were removed in 2017 after white supremacists rioted in Charlottesville.

  • An exception: The Cow Cavalry Monument in Plant City was removed along with nine others around the state in 2020.
