A large group gathered in the state's capitol today to show their united support for Confederate war hero, Jefferson Davis. Davis was the president of the Confederacy during the war between the states that occurred from 1861 to 1865.

The statue has become controversial because of Davis’ ties to the Confederacy during the Civil War.
The Jefferson Davis statue has been in the Kentucky state capitol for decades and some are calling for it's removal. But the group that was at the capitol Friday said that if the statue is removed, you erase part of history.
Many of the people at the rally held Confederate flags, and some wore Civil-War era military uniforms. Their message was removing the statue would be removing a piece of history.
“This is absurd this is our history and people need to look at it and say hey, it's everybody's history is what it is,” said Kerry Crutcher, a supporter.
Last month Gov. Steve Beshear said it’s time to reconsider the placement of the statue.
Davis was the president of the confederacy during the Civil War.
“Each thread of tapestry is woven together and we must remember all, in fear that we will commit the same sins of our fathers,” said David Shaltas, a supporter.
Senator Mitch McConnell and gubernatorial candidate Matt Bevin have also spoken out against the statue’s placement – suggesting it be moved to a museum.
