SEE IT: Removal of Confederate Monuments Underway in Downtown Raleigh

The North Carolina Confederate Monument is being removed from Capitol grounds in Raleigh following Gov. Cooper's call for all Confederate monuments to be removed from the area.

Crews were on scene to remove the 75-foot monument early Sunday morning and are continuing to work throughout the day.

The soldier atop the monument was removed around 9 a.m. and crews began dismantling the obelisk around 1 p.m.

In a statement Saturday, Gov. Roy Cooper said he ordered all monuments on the Capitol grounds be moved "to protect public safety."

This included the Daughters of the Confederacy Monument, the Henry Lawson Wyatt Monument along with the remainder of the NC Confederate Monument.

On Friday night, the monument was partially toppled. Demonstrators tore down two statues from the monument and dragged them through the streets of downtown Raleigh.
