Company takes down Southern secession billboard

 

The Associated Press

 

MONTGOMERY, Ala. -- The head of the Confederate League of the South says an advertising company has removed a highway billboard that advocated a Southern secession from the United States. 

 

Michael Hill is president of the Confederate League of the South. He said Monday that Lamar Advertising Co. took down the billboard along Interstate 85 in Montgomery following complaints. The billboard had the word "secede" in capital letters, along with the league's name and website. 

 

The sign went up Friday and was removed over the weekend. 

 

Hill said the company offered a refund, but that wasn't necessary since he had yet to pay. 

 

A Lamar Advertising executive did not return a message seeking comment.
