WATCH: Johnny Reb Being Removed From Orl Park

The Confederate statue "Johnny Reb" is being taken down right now in an Orlando park, and it will be reassembled in a cemetery.

Despite being on display in the city since 1911, there has been a renewed public outcry claiming it's a symbol of racism and white supremacy.

City officials say it should take six-weeks and $120,000 to move and rebuild it.  

Historians are working on an inscription to be added putting the monument "in proper historical perspective."
