By George McDonald

From the West Alabama Newsroom-- The fight over a confederate monument in Selma could soon be over -- after the city council votes to sell the property it sits on -- to a confederate group.

The council voted last night to sell the acre of land in Old Live Oak Cemetery known as Confederate Circle -- to the United Daughters of the Confederacy -- for 60-thousand dollars.

The memorial includes a graveyard and monuments to the dead -- including General Nathan Bedford Forrest.

A project to improve the memorial and the security of the Forrest monument was shut down by the city about a year ago after a group started a protest.
