Sarasota unconditional surrender statue to remain on Sarasota Bayfront

Sarasota County

SARASOTA, Fla. (WFLA) – Sarasota’s unconditional surrender statue will not be moved away from the city’s bayfront.

Congressman Vern Buchanan took to Twitter to thank Sarasota City Manager Tom Barwin for making the decision to keep the statue on the bayfront.

The city had considered moving the statue, to make room for a new roundabout relocating it four miles inland to less prominent locations.

The statue will however be placed back on the bayfront following the completion of the roundabout.
